“God is proclaimed through the encounter between persons, with care for their history and their journey. Because the Lord is not an idea, but a living Person: his message is passed on through simple and authentic testimony, by listening and welcoming, with joy which radiates outward.”

EDUCATION: Formed in His Communion

Religious education

The Religious Education program is provided for children in grades K through eight who are attending public and non-Catholic schools, or who are home-schooled. They are instructed about their Catholic faith on Monday evenings during the school year from 6:30 PM to 7:45 PM in the school building.

The Religious Education Program provides assistance and support to parents in preparing children for the reception of the sacraments of Penance, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation, as well as ongoing Christian formation. Children ages 8 and older who are coming into the Church enter a RCIA program for children. This meets weekly during the year.

To register your child, contact Therese Tirador, Director of Religious Education, 202-286-9106.

Dear Parents:
The 2017-2018 Atrium sessions begins this week and it's not too late to register!
The Atrium is a beautiful space prepared for children where contemplation and wonder are at the heart. The Atrium offers the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (see brief video), a Catholic Montessori religious education program founded on the Scriptures and the Liturgy of the Church. Through hands-on work and joyful contemplation, the children are invited to nourish their relationship with Jesus and to deepen their love for His Church. 
This year, we again offer a Level I Atrium for children 30 months to six years old and a Level II Atrium for children ages six to nine years old.  Our Atrium is located in the Montessori Primary classroom on the southwest side of St. Jerome Academy's lower level. 
Both Level I and Level II Atrium classes will meet in the afternoon weekly throughout the school year.  
There is still space available in the Level I Atrium session meeting 1:30-3:00 p.m. on Thursdays as well as the Level II Atrium session offered 3:30-5:30 pm on Wednesdays.
The cost for the Atrium program is $500 for Level II  and $400 for Level I for the whole school year, to be paid in three installments.  The cost is the same for parishioners and non-parishioners.  Please note: if you register for the 1:30-3:00 pmThursday Level I Atrium, completing the immunization forms is required in addition to the online registration form.
Our Catechist this year for all Atrium sessions is Mrs. Elizabeth Burghart. Mrs Burghart is trained in all three levels of the Catechesis and has worked in Atria across the country for over a decade. 
Here is the link to the registration form:
Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis and Atrium class sizes are limited.  Acceptance into the class requires payment of the $100 tuition deposit and any unpaid balance of tuition from the previous year.
Thank you for your interest in St. Jerome's Atrium.
Yours in Christ,
Andrea DeLee
Coordinator of Montessori Program
St. Jerome Academy
