Overview

Overview

St. Jerome School says

St. Jerome Academy is the Archdiocese of Washington's Classical school. Our educational plan is based on the Classical Trivium (Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric) and incorporates 5000 years of human knowledge, integrated by an understanding of the revelation of Jesus Christ as the central point of history. The St. Jerome Educational Plan was developed by our own panel of expert volunteers, and is designed to align the benefits of methods developed over more than 1000 years with the needs of a contemporary classroom. Our curriculum, which was implemented during the 2010-2011 academic year, has already been adopted by other schools around the country and is being considered for implementation in several entire dioceses. Our highly qualified and enthusiastic faculty are committed to educating every student to understand and practice the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. The Washington Post published a positive article about our unique educational program in April of 2011, and many other local and national media have also covered St. Jerome Academy since the inception of our Classical educational plan.
