St. James the Less School is a Catholic learning community committed to educating the whole student.
Spiritual, moral, social, academic, and emotional needs are nurtured in a Christ-centered environment that respects the uniqueness of each student.
We value each student as a gift from God with unique spiritual, physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.
We seek to provide a challenging curriculum with the flexibility to meet the needs of each student through a variety of learning activities and instruction.
We expect students to demonstrate their understanding of essential knowledge and skills for problem solving encouraging scientific exploration, artistic and musical creativity and appreciation, and physical activity and development.
We provide an atmosphere of mutual respect among students, staff, and parents by modeling Gospel values and practicing our faith.
We are dedicated to educating the mind, body, and spirit of each child with the hope of nurturing confident, well-rounded, faith filled life learners.
