Middle School Program
Saint Jerome Middle School admits children on a space-available basis.
Our classes are limited to 20 students and are staffed by teachers qualified in specific subject areas.
Our middle school curriculum offers:
Computer programming languages
Religious education plays a critical part in all of our grade levels. Our faith is the foundation for our school and drives all of our work.
In addition to the academics, all of our classes take field trips, participate in volunteer opportunities, attend Mass, enjoy lots of extracurricular activities and work with students across all age groups.
Sixth grade is a broad and multi-faceted world of exploration. Our students work with their peers on determining problem solving strategies and then on deciding how to implement those strategies. Creativity across language arts, math and lots of hands-on STEM work is critical to developing thought processes that provide a foundation for future development.
By seventh grade, the students feel confident in their knowledge skills based on successful experiences of the previous years, thus encouraging productive and effective learning across the curriculum. Communication is paramount. Students also work to write research papers and form arguments. Mathematics, computer programming and science tie together setting strong college preparatory foundations.
Eighth graders are the leaders of our school, looked up to by younger students and charged with setting examples for all. From math to literature and science to religion, complex themes are emphasized so students are well prepared for high school and college. Eighth grade is the showcase opportunity students have aspired to throughout their rigorous St. Jerome education. Our students work to finalize the incredible work and creativity each has applied across their years at our school.

Unique to Saint Jerome School
The Saint Jerome Buddy Program connects our early childhood students with our older students and is a favorite among all of our students. Given our smaller class sizes, we work to have our students build relationships all can learn from and enjoy! From attending Mass and lunch together to playing and creating art projects or reading new books, the Buddy Program is a winner every year.
