St. James Academy

  • Our academy was started to give people who had not finished high school a second chance.
  • The School's program is set up for the students to be able to take their assignments home and work on them at their own pace, with help from the instructors just a phone call away.
  • Tutoring sessions for students are also available for those with special needs. We try to offer all the amenities of a regular high school to our students; a Graduation service is in May of every year, class rings are available, and graduation pictures can be taken at any time. Many of our students go on to college and recieve advanced degrees.
  • Here's hoping to see you in the near future at St. James, where "It's Never 2 Late.".

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
