We, the administrators, faculty and staff of Saint James Catholic School, are committed to educating the whole child by promoting academic excellence and responsible citizenship within a Catholic faith community imbued with the IHM Charism.
Faithful to Christ's mandate to teach all nations, we embrace the diversity of our student population, collaborate with their parents as the primary teachers, and provide service opportunities to better understand ecological and global interdependence.
We strive to model our lives on the Person of Jesus Christ, the Teacher and Redeemer, in order to inspire, lead, and challenge our students to fully develop their God-given abilities.
For the past century Saint James Catholic School has provided a dynamic Christ-centered learning environment.
We believe that all aspects of our educational program profess our Catholic faith, values and traditions and foster lives rooted in Gospel values.
Recognizing that each person is a unique child of God, we strive to enable all persons to develop their full potential.
