    • The Educational Plan
      • “St. Jerome Academy educates children in the truest and fullest sense by giving them the necessary tools of learning and by fostering wonder and love for all that is genuinely true, good, and beautiful. We emphasize classical learning because we want our students to read well, speak well, and think well and ultimately because truth and beauty are good in themselves and desirable for their own sake. We seek to incorporate our students into the wisdom of two thousand years of Catholic thought, history, culture, and arts so that they might understand themselves and their world in the light of the truth and acquire the character to live happy and integrated lives in the service of God and others. Education in this deep and comprehensive sense extends beyond the classroom and is more than just the acquisition of skills. It encompasses the whole of one’s life. For this reason, St. Jerome’s seeks to involve families ever more deeply in the life of the school and in the education of their children.”
    • Classical Education and Academic Expectations
      • Character Development
        1. Form and inform a correct and Catholic conscience so as to better delight in the things one ought to delight in and to shun the things one ought to shun
        2. Grow in virtue, which is the fruit and seed of morally good acts, making possible self-mastery, ease, and joy in leading a morally good life
        3. Contribute to the common good of civil society by accepting the duties of citizenship, promoting the dignity and sanctity of all persons inherent in an authentic Culture of Life, and exercising stewardship over the natural world
        4. Recognize the resounding call to life-long conversion of heart, thereby engendering compassion and forgiveness for our fellow man”
