Established in 1961 and fully accredited, our distinguished faculty boasts a full time state certified guidance counselor as well as state-certified teachers and faculty who hold advanced degrees.  As part of the ministry of St. Jerome Catholic Church, we are proud to be an intimate faith-and-family-centered school.

Our St. Jerome graduates continue their education at prestigious schools such as St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop McCarthy, and Chaminade-Madonna.


We continually integrate new technologies and materials into our classrooms.

About us


St. Jerome Catholic School provides students with a thorough, faith-centered, and high-standard curriculum.

St. Jerome Catholic School is committed to providing a strong curriculum that allows our graduates to excel academically, spiritually, and socially, in high school, college, and beyond. The curriculum has been developed and is implemented to allow our students to be creative and independent thinkers while integrating our Catholic values. The curriculum provides opportunities for students to learn and value a sense of community, national, as well as a global perspective. We are committed to the development of faith-filled, responsible, and contributing members for tomorrow.

All students in grades PreK-8 take core curriculum classes consisting of English Language Arts (reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary), Math, Science, Social Studies, and Religion. These core areas are extended and connected in special classes and STREAM. After school clubs such as NJHS, Panther Press, Fashion and Design, and STEM, enhance student leadership skills and explore a variety of extra curriculum interest.
Ultimately, our goal at St. Jerome Catholic School is to prepare the whole child as they progress through the years to enter the higher academic world and become compassionate and intellectual members of society.
