St. James Academy is a leading PreKindergarten through Eighth Grade independent school. The Academy’s approach to education opens young minds to think beyond the page and explore beyond borders. The low student/teacher ratio gives teachers the flexibility to adhere to a strong curriculum and also tailor classes for students to discover their interests and strengths from an early age.
The curriculum builds year upon year, thus preventing gaps and ensuring ten consistent years of academic preparation for success in high school and beyond. The academic program includes accelerated small group math and reading instruction and intentional technology integration. World Language classes begin in PreKindergarten as cultural exploration and continue through Middle School. Students study visual and performing arts including chorus, band, and drama. There are three after-school musicals per year. The artist-in-residence program and visiting author series further enhance the student experience. Students in Fifth through Eighth Grades have opportunities to participate in interscholastic athletics.
