St. Jerome Catholic Schoolwide Learning Expectations

Diocese of Phoenix coordinates a cycle of curriculum review, revision& implementation for all curricular areas.

Saint Jerome utilizes these adopted curricula to direct day-to-day learning. Our core curriculum meets and exceeds the standards of other private and public schools. Students at Saint Jerome are taught religion, communication arts (reading, writing, Spanish, etc.), mathematics, science, social studies, fine arts, and physical education. Through active learning strategies that promote decision making skills, problem solving techniques, and critical and creative thinking, students at Saint Jerome are encouraged to discover and develop their many talents.

Our goal is to prepare each student who graduates from Saint Jerome School to be:
