Welcome To St. James Academy

Guiding Better Paths for Tomorrow

At St. James Academy, we are committed to inspiring students to fulfill their academic potential while instilling moral values, social consciousness, and Christ’s message into the fabric of each school day.

We understand the difficulty and importance of finding the right school for your children to flourish. We realize that growing up isn’t easy and children need structure and spiritual guidance to make wise choices for themselves. Therefore it is our mission to teach, care and nurture your children as if they were our own because at St. James Academy we are not just educators that love what we do—we are a family.

We Are As Committed As You Are

We Are Family

St James Academy is the place for your family to grow both academically and spiritually as you share in the life of this faith community. We work with parents to develop learners of faith and action, inspiring them to become leaders who model Christian values and are respectful of self and others. With parents as partners, we nurture and guide students to strength of mind, body and spirit.

We are proud that our small school size facilitates close relationships and personal connections between staff, students and families. Many parents enjoy staying involved in their child's school lives longer and are creating family relationships that last a lifetime.
