School Notes:

Saint James School is committed to developing educated Christian citizens of tomorrow. We at St. James School believe that Catholic education develops in children an attitude of true Christianity. We believe that the purpose of education is the growth and development of the whole person, mind, body and spirit.

Our academic program encompasses more of the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curricula in student instruction and activities. More science experimentation and immersion into robotics is helping to give our students an educational opportunity to attain high achievements now and in their future years of higher education.
