St. James the Apostle Catholic school (K-8) has dedicated itself to being a leader in academic, technological and theological excellence, striving to display the highest traditions and standards of the Catholic Church.
St. James the Apostle has a rich tradition of academic excellence based in Catholic values and morals.
St. James the Apostle school is committed to the threefold purpose of Christian education as defined by the National Council of Catholic Bishops: to proclaim the word, to build the community, and to serve God and humanity.
Our school strives to provide each child with a challenging academic program rooted in the beliefs, values and traditions of Catholic Christianity; to guide each child in acquiring skills, virtues and habits required for effective service to God, self and humanity; to enable each child to fully discover and develop his or her God given ability; to promote involvement between home and school to further the shared role of education between parents, guardians and teachers; and to recognize the role of school in the light of the ministry of education professed by the St. James parish community.
