Come and follow me!
St. Jerome Parish School offers each child a Catholic value-based education, providing a loving and caring environment in which to learn. Our educational philosophy is based upon concern for the whole child – spirit, mind, and body. Jesus is certainly our formational role model for how we live and interact with others.
We believe in fostering a strong parent/faculty partnership, giving our children a solid foundation so that they may grow into responsible young adults who can make a positive difference in our world today.
It would be my joy to meet you and your family and share our faith-filled program with you. Please contact our office to arrange a date and time to become acquainted with our school and the rich Catholic value-based formation we offer. Thank you for your interest in our school and parish family.
Our School Mission

We are committed to providing a strong educational foundation challenging children under the professional guidance of a dedicated, enthusiastic staff in partnership with parents.
Vision of Our Graduates
St. Jerome Parish School is committed to providing our students with a solid Catholic foundation which is a stepping stone for successful achievement throughout their high school years and beyond.
As our graduates depart for their respective high schools, it our vision that each be quipped with the following: a strong moral compass to know right from wrong; “the light of their faith” to grow brighter throughout their high school years; their love for learning to always be the motivating “star” to “reach for excellence” in their academic, moral, and spiritual life.
Grounded in these attributes each child will make a difference in their surroundings and future schooling.
Our Catholic Identity
Promotion of Catholic Identity is essential to our school and is enhanced in various ways throughout our school year:
- Introduction to Saint of the Day during all school morning prayer
- All school Masses hosted by a different class each week
- Weekly class adoration in our adoration chapel
- Prayer corners in each classroom
- Class prayer intentions
- Class retreats
- Service projects for the needy, elderly, community
- Catholic symbols throughout the school
- Class prayer throughout the day
- Devotional prayer services during each liturgical season
Our mission statement is visible through wall plaques, bookmarks, wristbands, signs and is made meaningful to our students, encouraging them to follow Jesus in our thoughts, words, and actions everyday.
