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.

Catholic Education
St. Jerome was a scholar and historian who translated the bible into Latin and because of him, we have a modern translation of the bible and can fully understand and study Holy Scriptures. St. Jerome, a true intellectual and scholar, once said " ignorance of scriptures is ignorance of Christ", subsequently, all grade levels take Religion as an academic subject. Students leave our school with an understanding of the Catholic Faith, Traditions, and Scripture. Our teachers are encouraged to “Teach as Jesus did” and our students are always encouraged to follow in Jesus’ footsteps.
