School Notes

  • The mission of Saint James School is to develop Christ-centered academic excellence in all of our students, and the entire St. James School community shares in this mission. Saint James School is blessed with an active and supportive Home School Association that works closely with the school administration to organize events and raise funds.We promise to provide a safe, engaging and fun learning environment to nurture your child`s emerging skills.We believe that God works with us and through us. That God invites us into a deeper relationship with Him and calls us into this community. That through community, character and integrity are forged, and we move away from self toward others. We believe in using our gifts and talents in the service of others and the importance of conversation as a means to growth.  We believe in the power of love to help us realize our God-given potential and the importance of seeking truth, beauty, and goodness. We believe in a community where all members are respected and where we celebrate the accomplishments of one another.

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.

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
