Our school and dedicated teachers in grades Preschool-8th grade offer a Christ-centered curriculum.  We teach the faith the way you teach the faith at home.  Here at St. Jerome, we take pride in the way students are actively using technology, learning with small interactive groups, projects, hands-on, and presentations in Religion, Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies.  The students participate in special classes in Physical Education and Music, Art, Spanish, and Drama.

We strive for students to know and value the school-wide learning expectations as they become Faith Followers, and Lifelong Learners.  Students are taught so they develop into Complex Thinkers and Effective Communicators.

Special offerings at St. Jerome include full time, 5-STAR-rated Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes, small class sizes, standardized and benchmark assessments and online resources to meet the needs of each student. Mass, prayer, retreats, and adoration support each child’s moral development and faith formation. Our SMART Lab allows learning to be project-based, hands-on, science, engineering and math focused for all levels. We offer after and before-school care to meet the needs of working families and there is after-school athletics for grades 5-8 and drama and theater clubs after school. The well-stocked library is available for students to check out books.

Other opportunities include participation in the Scripps Spelling Bee, science fair, service projects, and National Catholic School Week events.

Best of all, scholarships and the state of Arizona tax credits make education from St. Jerome Catholic School available, affordable, and accessible to all families.
