Student Admissions

What to Know About Registration

Academic achievement is only a small part of a student’s life. Preparing children for life requires a strong foundation, and at Saint Jerome School, that includes a commitment to academic excellence, putting faith at the center, and engaging in community service as a way to integrate faith with learning. The school’s focus on developing the whole child physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually, reflects on its promise to form good citizens.

Current Student Registration

Current families are the reason for our success and stability. Our school remains strong because of your commitment to Catholic education. For returning students, the full deposit is applied to the tuition balance if, on March 1, the registration form and deposit are received. If a returning student's registration is received after March 1, none of the deposit amount will be applied to the tuition balance.

New Student Registration

Saint Jerome School admits students on a rolling admissions policy. Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year will be accepted all year long, if space is available. To schedule an interview or tour, call us at 781-335-1235.

A limited amount of financial aid is available. In order to be eligible for funds through the Catholic Schools Foundation or local assistance, a family must be enrolled in the FACTS Tuition Management Plan. Financial aid applications are now being accepted by filling out the forms on the  FACTS website. Awards for the 2019-2020 academic year will be announced in May and June.
