This year we are starting our 4th year at St. James. We transferred in when my oldest entered 5th grade. Our kids made the transition from single-class-per-grade to two-classes-per-grade much easier than we imagined. The benefits of the larger environment are both academic and social.

This is our first year at St James and I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing experience this has been!

School has a high degree of effort spent on raising money. After paying a huge tuitiion for my daughter, she was told to get summer help.

My daughter and son have already graduated from St. James and my third child is in 5th grade. We made the switch from public school when my daughter was in 6th grade. Her grades were slipping because the teachers had no control over the classroom. She, and my sons, thrived at St. James. There is structure ...  Read more
