A Community of Faith and Learning

The benefits of a Catholic education have been studied and well-documented.  Results show that students who attend Catholic school receive a challenging, high-quality academic experience in a supportive environment, with an emphasis on Catholic values.  There is a strong partnership with parents, the first educators of their children.  The self-discipline developed by students, along with learning to accept responsibility and to respect others, work together to create excellent life-long learners and responsible citizens.

The Larger Benefits:

“We chose St. James Catholic School for our children based on its reputation for academic excellence and the joint parent/teacher commitment to each child’s success. Our boys enjoy school, desire to work hard, and feel comfortable and respected within the St. James School community. When we first chose St. James, we didn’t fully realize the intangible benefits of belonging to it. It has strengthened our faith, brought our whole family closer to God, and helped us in living His values each day. This is a benefit that will extend beyond these primary years.”
– Tom and Cari Dorsh


The Caring Difference:

“St. James provided our daughter with a wonderfully supportive learning community where she was able to learn and thrive. The teachers and staff truly care about their students, and the small class sizes and well-structured program gave our daughter just what she needed. She loved her school, her teachers, and all her friends at St. James, and she greatly misses them now that we’ve moved out of state. St. James is a very special place!”
– David and Barb Lundbom
