Fort Pierce, FL, 34982
     Tel: (772)468-6198
Grades: 9 - 12 | 800 students
Our academy was started to give people who had not finished high school a second chance.
The School's program is set up for the students to be able to take their assignments home and work on them at their own pace, with help from the instructors just a phone call away.
Tutoring sessions for students are also available for those with special needs.  We try to offer all the amenities of a regular high school to our students; a Graduation service is in May of every year, class rings are available, and graduation pictures can be taken at any time. Many of our students go on to college and recieve advanced degrees.
Here's hoping to see you in the near future at St. James, where "It's Never 2 Late."

School Notes:

Our academy was started to give people who had not finished high school a second chance. Each student sets his or her own pace to finish their assignments; with help from the instructors just a phone call away. Tutoring sessions for students are also available for those with special needs. To graduate, four folders must be completed, the cost is $150.00. There are no refunds on packets. For out-of-area students the cost is $160.00, which includes a ten dollar fee ($10) for shipping and handling. If the program is going to be completed through the mail please include the following items: Full name, address, phone number, social security number, and date of birth.

We try to offer all the amenities of a regular high school to our students; a Graduation service is in May of every year, class rings are available, and graduation pictures can be taken at any time.

Our only requirement is that all students must be over the age of 17. If the student is a minor please include the previous school's withdrawal papers and a note of parental consent.

Many of our students go on to college and recieve advanced degrees. Here's hoping to see you in the near future at St. James, where "It's Never 2 Late."
