St. James School and Holy Cross School are entering into a merger as of the fall of 2015.
This reconfiguration of schools will be housed on the Holy Cross campus.
All new Highwood, Highland Park and military families will continue to be welcomed at this new regional school.
Many of our military families pass along information about St. James School to their friends who transfer into Great Lakes or Fort Sheridan as the school of choice for their children.
