North County’s Premier Catholic School


Maintaining a high standard of excellence is a top priority for Saint James Academy. The cost of challenging each student to reach for academic excellence, in an environment based on the Catholic values that inspire leadership in faith and action, exceeds tuition every year. The administration, along with the Advisory Board, is making the commitment to reduce our dependence on fundraising to fill this gap in the general budget. At the same time, fundraising remains a priority at Saint James Academy. The goal is to have the main focus of donations on promoting the highest quality educational experience by providing program enrichment, special projects, and facility improvement. Annual fundraising benefits every single child at Saint James Academy. Each year we strive to achieve 100% parent participation and each year community generosity helps ensure the strength of the learning environment and helps us retain superior faculty. Fundraising gifts small and large have an immediate impact on keeping Saint James Academy the outstanding school that it is. We are grateful for all of the wonderful ways our school and parish community are supported. We enjoy our partnership with the community as we work to grow both academically and spiritually.

Held in the winter, each student has a spelling list to master. They collect pledges for each word they spell correctly. This program is a great way to involve friends and grandparents in helping support SJA! And at the same time it teaches important life lessons on the concepts of rewards from hard work.
