At St. James Academy we work hard together to provide an excellent academic program in a faith filled environment. St James Academy is the place where families grow both academically and spiritually as they share in the life of this faith community. With parents as partners, we nurture and guide students to strength of mind, body and spirit. We provide high academic standards, challenging our students to intellectual excellence. Our campus is filled with the sounds of joyful passionate learning led by a talented and dedicated faculty and staff. Recently, we have been nationally recognized for our programs in sports, arts, music, inclusion and eco-awareness. Our students excel at the next levels: 100% acceptance to the Catholic high schools of choice, extraordinary success at the high-school level and acceptance at top colleges and universities. Together we will do great things for the future leaders of our community.
