Opportunity. There are so many opportunities to flourish, and to learn and try new things, in a small Christian school environment.

Our children have grown in their faith as young men and women. They have received amazing opportunities to develop in their athletics careers and competencies. The education they have received at St. James has made them extremely well prepared for high school academics.

At St. James, children are prepared for high school through top notch academics, an understanding of living a well-balanced life, and the courage to do what is right through a strong Christian faith.

Come for the athletics, arts, and academics…stay for the Christ-centered experience that will guide your child throughout the rest of his or her life.
