Athletic Virtues

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Prov. 27:17


God uses the vessel of sport to transform lives. Ultimately, whatever your role or record, the truth remains it is all about the relationships we build with God and one another, and how God uses our experiences to make us more like Jesus. These are the foundational beliefs behind everything we do within the SJA Athletic Program. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as you love yourself." Luke 10:27

Fit to Lead


In our world today, where endless information is available at our fingertips, it truly is the ability to work together as a team that is the distinguishing factor in success.  Saint James students are becoming "Fit to Lead" - healthy in every aspect of their lives - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, relationally.  The Fit to Lead physical education curriculum is designed to intentionally empower students in their leadership, team building and conflict resolution skills.  Students also grow in movement literacy, athletic skills, self-defense, health & nutrition, and their faith through physical activity in P.E. classes.
