St. James School offers a variety of educational programs combined with Catholic doctrine and values.
Our program begins with a flexible pre-school programs and extends to the middle school block-schedule format.
Curriculum is enhanced with religious education, physical education, music, art, and Spanish All combine to provide a solid value based educational program.
Saint James School, a Catholic, Christian community, sees its primary focus of education to be holistic in nature.
In addition to its promotion of academic excellence, we at St. James believe in the power of Catholic education to transform the lives of its students, and in its ability to empower those students to be ever present signs in our world today that God is truly with us, as we strive to integrate the spiritual with the academic, social and emotional well-being of each student.
First and foremost in our goals is the development and nurturance of each child's gift of faith.
Through meaningful celebrations of the sacraments, and a conscious effort at inculcating the principles of our Catholic faith, we encourage our students to choose wisely in their dealings with themselves and others, and to share willingly their beliefs both in and out of the school environment, and to believe strongly in the power of prayer, a constant thread woven throughout the entire school day.
