At Saint James the Apostle School, students are encouraged to recognize the presence of Christ in themselves and others. Students are expected to accept responsibility for their actions, to respect others and to make good decisions in the context of their faith experience. Our teachers expect every student to achieve to the best of their ability. We offer a safe, supportive environment.
We are a caring community. The school supports families and works with them for the benefit of children. When you send your child to a Catholic school, your family becomes members of a special community. Like your children, your family will be enriched by the opportunity to grow in faith.
