There are many reasons why we love Saint James for our kids. It offers students a strong academic curriculum, caring faculty and staff, a variety of extra-curricular activities, great school traditions, and several opportunities for families to come together throughout the year for fun and fellowship. Most importantly, Saint James seeks to build a solid foundation of faith and virtue in its students with an emphasis on prayer, service to others, and love of God and neighbor. We are grateful and blessed to be part of this school community!
