St. James Academy, a preschool through Eighth Grade independent school, is committed to a program of excellence that prepares students for lifelong learning. Families and educators come together to nurture children, champion curiosity, and prepare students for success in their next steps. St. James Academy’s approach to education includes project-based, experiential learning to help students build a relevant, adaptive skill set with a solid academic foundation. Students can participate in many programs and opportunities that allow them to find their spark and develop their passions and strengths. They develop meaningful relationships with their teachers and peers, allowing students to answer challenging questions in class, try new activities or sports, and perform on stage in musicals. Teachers design their curriculum so that students connect with the material directly and take ownership of their learning. In St. James’ values-centered community, students will thrive as self-advocates and successful citizens.
