St. James Cathedral School is an educational ministry of St. James Cathedral Church.
A Catholic school committed to outstanding academic and spiritual development of all students, St. James Cathedral School provides varied opportunities for students to discover and develop their unique God-given gifts in a safe and stimulating learning environment.
The love and stewardship of Jesus is our inspiration.
We come to learn; we leave to serve.
We believe it is our role to develop and foster each child's unique, God-given gifts by encouraging students to do all they are capable of doing by themselves in child-centered classrooms where teachers act as facilitators; We believe that Catholic schools should provide children with a spiritual and academic foundation that will lead to the development of creative and ethical problem solvers who will make a positive contribution to our world.
We believe that a St. James education should include intellectual, spiritual, moral, and emotional formation that reflects the values we hold most dearly … integrity, honesty, moral courage, discipline, and initiative.
