Welcome to our new curriculum for Pre-K through Grade 10! (Grades 11 & 12 still in progress) For those families who do not have a truly Catholic school nearby, homeschooling is the only option. A few years ago, some parents asked us to publish lesson plans for what we would recommend for school books. That was the beginning of these St. Jerome School Lesson Plans, and eventually St. Jerome School!
St. Jerome School was first begun by one large traditional Catholic family in 2018. As we began creating fun Catholic books for our children to use, we found that others were interested in using them, too. As we continued to grow, we were absolutely amazed how God would place just the right talents into our lives to make incredible books for Catholic homeschoolers! What you see now is the combined efforts of both clergy and traditional Catholics who love making education effective and beautiful! We offer here a list that can be printed to see what books are included in our lesson plans. These books have been chosen for both their proven effectiveness for teaching (many have been used in Catholic schools for 50-100 years), but also the interest that children hold in the books themselves.
After several requests for lesson plans that are both affordable and beautiful, we are so very excited to share with these with you and hope you enjoy them as much as we do! These new lesson plans feature color-coded days of the week and seasonal backgrounds with assignments, as well as many of the new and excitingly fun books we now offer.
We are Pre-Vatican II Traditional Catholics. We carry on the true Faith as Christ taught us He would be with us until the end of time. We do not tolerate modern errors. So, if you are of the same belief, you can rest assured that we do not promote books that teach Modernism, the synthesis of all heresies. If there are any errors in books we recommend, we point out those places to "fix" in our lesson plans. We are continually working on putting out new solid books and exciting reprints of older, public domain works that teach the Faith as it always was, unchanging.
St. Jerome School offers affordable, classic and sound education for homeschoolers. Our main goal is to create a quality curriculum that raises saints for Heaven, but is also manageable for the busy family who understands that homeschooling is just one important aspect of a Catholic life. We don't want you to feel overwhelmed, but excited to homeschool! As an alternative, if you can afford it and are interested in an incredible education online with live Religious, we highly recommend: The Queen of All Saints Online Academy
Please pray for guidance for us from the Holy Ghost in all our endeavors. Please note that a few of the books listed below have yet to be released. If we are out of stock of something, it may be because we are replacing that book for the next school year with our own title. Please be patient with us as we grow. It will take us a few years to get all the titles complete that we are working on. In the past two years, we have released about 300 new titles! Feel free to email us with questions if you have any. May everything be done according to God's will to help educate our beautiful children's souls for a life eternally in Heaven! Praised be Jesus & Mary!

We are working as hard as we can to get everything done that possibly can be for the 2019-2020 school year. Some things have to wait until the next school year though for a sheer lack of time. Here is a very current list of the grades that have been updated for the 2019-2020 school year. Please feel free to email us with any questions.

Please note that we do not currently sell the high school Apologia science books (i.e. "Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics") or the Saxon Math books (Grades 4-12). These are fairly expensive, large books that we would be pouring too much of our financial resources into if we stocked them. We recommend that you buy them from Christianbook.com (actually not Christian at all, but Protestant) which offers the most affordable prices. They frequently have sales on these popular items. Buying these books from them will save our customers money, as well as ourselves from having to stock them.
