Families and communities can count on Catholic schools to instill in students the faith, knowledge, morals and discipline that will enable them to fulfill their future roles as committed citizens, productive employees and effective leaders.

At St. James Catholic School all students are given an opportunity for educational excellence and religious formation in the Catholic intellectual tradition and challenged by a curriculum of the highest caliber in a safe, loving, family centered environment.
