Saint Jerome Academy

School Description:

St. Jerome Academy is the Archdiocese’s Classical school and one of only a few schools nationwide to pair a liberal-arts based K-8 curriculum with a Montessori pre-K program. Our school is dedicated to the cultivation of truth, goodness and beauty in every child.

The SJA Educational Plan was implemented in the 2010-2011 school year, after years of declining enrollment. Following several straight years of dramatic growth, SJA is now at full enrollment and attracts 175-200 applicants per year.

At A Glance:

Distinctive of SJA: Trivium (grammar, logic and rhetoric) pedagogy; diachronical lessons; integrated core curriculum; emphasis on primary sources; use of Socratic dialogue; preference for analog over digital methods; teaching of the transcendentals and virtues. Special-ed/resource program.
