Small class size offers Saint James Catholic School students more individual attention. Teachers differentiate instruction and provide for individual needs. The ability of an exemplary faculty to inform the minds and hearts of the young people they teach in a small, nurturing environment maximizes the success of each student.
Our curriculum includes an expansive foundation in the major academic disciplines, foreign language, religion, a wide array of arts offerings, and the distinction of being a National Blue Ribbon School.
Ultimately, success is measured by the accomplishments of our students as they transition to high school. Local high schools often remark that Saint James graduates make up the best part of their school. Our graduates may or may not be the smartest child in every grade, but they are the most well-rounded students coming from a background with required community service hours, high academic standards and expectation of personal success. The Terra Nova Test is given to all students in K-2, 3, 5 and 7 and also provides another benchmark to measure success. Saint James school students consistently perform above the Archdiocesan average for primary and middle schools.
