First round applicants (decisions announced 2/19/2021 )
First round applicants apply to SJI in the fall of the year prior to their admission. They have priority for financial aid and scholarship decisions and for admissions and wait-lists calls.
Tours and shadow day visits are a great way to get to know what the St. Jerome Institute is about. Visitors can sit in on a seminar or observe students working on projects first hand, while students can see what an entire day at SJI is like. You can use our interest forms to sign up, or contact our enrollment administrator, Emily Strab at email@example.com or 301-887-3008.

St. Jerome Institute is located in the school building at 1800 Perry Street NE, in the Brookland neighborhood of Washington, DC. Our entrance is the one closest to 18th street, right across from the basketball courts.
There is street parking on both sides of Perry Street (one-way), as well as street parking in the surrounding neighborhood.
We are accessible by metrorail and metrobus. From the Brookland-CUA metro rail stop, walk east on Otis St, turn left at 18th, and right at Perry Street, where you will see our entrance. Bus stops on the G8, H6, and E2 are nearby, with stops on the R4, 83, and 86 within walking distance.
We are not open for tours at the current time, but please fill out our tour interest form to schedule a small group tours after school hours, virtual tours, and to be notified of our Virtual Open Houses. You may also contact us directly at 301-887-3008.
Currently we are unable to offer shadow days.
A shadow day is a great way to see our curriculum in action through our students in their classes throughout the day. Shadow days are often the biggest help in decision-making for parents and students.
Shadow days are offered throughout the Fall for 8th graders and throughout the Spring for 7th graders. SJI shadow days are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays 8:30am-2:45pm.
Please call 301-887-3008 to schedule a shadow day for your middle school student.

For our first class of 2019-2020, we were able to secure over $90,000 in financial aid and scholarships for our students, and we are committed to continuing to work toward providing aid for future students.
