For the past century Saint James Catholic School has provided a dynamic Christ-centered learning environment.
We believe that all aspects of our educational program profess our Catholic faith, values and traditions and foster lives rooted in Gospel values. Recognizing that each person is a unique child of God, we strive to enable all persons to develop their full potential.
As part of the Religion program, students have the opportunity to attend the 8:30 a.m. Mass on a weekly basis. The entire school participates at 9:30 a.m. Mass on Holydays of Obligation when school is in session, for the opening and closing of school, and for special occasions as designated on the school calendar. The students honor the Blessed Mother by taking part in the annual May Procession and through devotions such as the recitation of the Rosary. Stations of the Cross and other various prayer experiences are held throughout the year.
Sacramental preparation is directed by the Director of Religious Education of the parish. Classroom teachers provide the daily instruction on the Sacraments and the DRE plans the events, provides the parent information meeting, and conducts the practices. Usually, second graders receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist. Eighth graders receive the Sacrament of Confirmation which is administered by the Bishop of the Diocese or his Designee.
