If you are looking for a faith-based, challenging academic environment that is also nurturing, St. James is an excellent school. They offer three world languages, small group learning for math and science (based on academic level), a performance-based academic enrichment program, a wide variety of sports and extracurricular activities, community service groups, a challenging curriculum (utilizing the honors grading system), and a heartfelt family environment. We moved our children from a different private school to St. James and have been so pleased with the level of education and professionalism of the entire staff. I highly recommend all that St. James has to offer.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
