Welcome from the Principal
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Saint James Catholic School! This place is not just a school. It is a vibrant, joyful, and faith-filled community of students, families, teachers and staff. Christ is the reason for our school, and He inspires us to proclaim the Good News in all we think, say, and do.
Our school is administered by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Immaculata, PA. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Sisters’ presence at Saint James Catholic School. Over the decades, the Sisters have devoted their lives alongside the dedicated faculty and staff to enrich the lives of our students.
As you will see, Saint James Catholic School has so much to offer students and their families. As a Christ centered school, the Catholic faith is woven throughout our entire day. We provide daily Religion classes that focus on the teachings of the Catholic Church and authentic Christian discipleship. The entire school community is nourished by prayer and service. Together we strive to grow in faith, hope, and love by being the face of Christ to all we meet.
Please explore our website and discover how our school ignites the potential in every child. We provide a robust curriculum for our elementary and middle school students. The curriculum is thoughtfully developed by the Office of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Arlington to reflect the values of Catholic education. In every subject, our goal is to nurture collaboration, creativity, enthusiasm, and critical thinking for the world today. After viewing our website, I invite you to visit our school, the home of the Rockets.
When you walk in the front door, you will feel the love and joy that fills these halls. As you peek into classrooms, you will see students who are engaged, challenged, and excited about learning. Our teachers will invite you in and proudly show off their students’ work.
Once you’ve visited our school, you are going to love it! Saint James School is a community where we take care of each other – a community that needs and welcomes you. Become a Saint James’ Rocket today!
Go Rockets! Ignite the World with God’s Love!
