If your child is ADD or has a learning disability, then you should definitely check out St. James. Your child will follow the same curriculum as students without disabilities, but accommodations will be made to help your child succeed. Read less

I find it interesting to read that another parent experienced her child being written up in one day. My child was written up three times in a week for what should have been normal child-like behavior that needed discipline, but not referals! Interesting enough the administration told me that their system
... Read more is too structured and they do not meet the needs of students who need to be excelled or challanged. They do not offer anything but what is in their curriculum binder for the whole class -- all the same. Public school are not allowed to do that. They do not differentiate for any students and because their teachers are not certified they do not know how to deal with children and their normal behaviors. They are looking for students who are on scholarships from the state. This is what I call a "pop-up" private school looking to make a quick buck from state money. So sad! Read less

Both of our children attended Saint James Christian Academy this year and were pleased with what they had to offer. The use an accredited academic platform and have a very caring staff. They are growing in enrollment and are adding positions as needed. From a Christian school standpoint I believe they
... Read more offer just the right amount of religious teaching and more-so a healthy environment for the children. If your children excelled beyond their level as ours did, they encourage their advancement through the curriculum with parental knowledge & approval. They are looking into purchasing a larger facility, however they make good use of the one they have. If you want a huge public school and all of the nonsense you get in the St Lucie School District then you have many to choose from, but if a safe, caring wholesome, healthy environment with a Christian flair, this school is well worth the investment - and peace of mind as parents.
