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.
