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.".
