St. Jerome Catholic School is a ministry of St. Jerome Parish. With our community, we share this mission statement:
The mission of St. Jerome Catholic School is we see God in all and respond with compassion and service while attaining excellence in education.
Here at St. Jerome, we strive to balance the students’ academic life with their spiritual life. Students
The school integrates the Catholic faith throughout the curriculum. The students have an academic Religion Class to learn the history and traditions of the Catholic Faith. All teachers are certified Catechists and include faith and Catholic world view in their teachings. Teachers attend Theology of the Body workshops (introduced into the curriculum beginning in August of 2019). Students have discussions and write papers based on social justice issues around the world.
Parents are reminded that they are the primary educators of their children. They are encouraged to attend masses, assemblies, prayer services and concerts. Communications are sent out to inform parents of faith formation activities.
Each classroom completes at least one community service event during the year. Classes have collected money, food items, made crafts, helped to clean the Church and parents have joined students at St. Mary’s Food Bank.
Fifth through eighth graders perform 10 hours of service hours per quarter.
