Welcome to St. Jerome School: We are a dynamic, urban school serving the needs of Cleveland’s Euclid Beach neighborhood, the Village of Bratenahl, and near suburbs. We offer a well-rounded Catholic education from Kindergarten through 8th Grade. A majority of our graduates go on to Catholic High Schools.
In addition to the academic and religious curriculum, we are pleased to offer a variety of extra-curricular activities and clubs, including the Junior Holy Name Society and Junior National Honor Society.
To better serve the needs of working parents after-school Latch Key Care until 6pm is available for a reasonable fee.
Mission Statement: The primary purpose of Saint Jerome School is to assist our parents in providing a Catholic education where their children learn to live the Gospel and to follow Jesus.
Curriculum: St. Jerome Catholic School follows the curriculum established by the Diocese of Cleveland in compliance with curriculum standards set by the State of Ohio. The course of study includes Mathematics, Reading, Phonics, Spelling, English, Science, Music, Physical Education, Computer Technology, Art, and Religion.
Students in grades 7 and 8 use block scheduling, changing classrooms and teachers for various subjects in preparation for High School and to allow for greater teacher specialization in given subject areas.
Religious Education: The Catholic Religion is taught daily. Our students attend Mass at least once each week. At least once a month the entire student body attends a School Mass. Children are invited to participate in these liturgies by reading, leading the Prayers of the Faithful, and by bringing up the gifts.
The Sacrament of Penance is made available to students during school hours twice a year in the seasons of Advent and Lent. Occasionally other liturgies such as Advent Services, Stations of the Cross, the Rosary, and May Crowning take place during the school year and are attended by our students.
Prayer is an important, integral part of the school day. Our children begin and end the day by praying together, as well as praying before lunch. Students are also encouraged to bring special needs to our attention so that we may pray for them.
Students in grades 5 through 8 are also invited to join the Junior Holy Name Society and Catholic students may become Mass servers.
Family Involvement: Parents and families play an important role in the life of the school and have many opportunities to become involved. We encourage all parents to attend St. Jerome Parent Teacher Unit (PTU) meetings held the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. from September to May.
