Welcome From the Pastor and Principal

Dear Families and Friends:

The value of a Catholic education can never be overstated or its reach imagined.

We appreciate your visit to our school website and hope you find the information enlightening.

At Saint Jerome School we are committed to academic excellence, a strong faith-filled environment and service as a means to building community. We are proud of our students, grateful to their families for allowing us to partner with them in their children's academic growth and faith development, and indebted to the parish for their support for fifty-seven years.

As pastor and principal, we hope you will use this site to learn more about our school and the many exciting opportunities we offer. Our students, parents, faculty, and parishioners look with pride on the accomplishments we have achieved together.

We would welcome you to return often to see the most recent news of our school or, better yet, come for a visit and witness first-hand the love of Christ made visible in our community.

In the joy of Christ,

Bishop John Dooher, Pastor and

Mrs. Kathleen Puleo, Principal
