Our Mission

St. James Catholic School, as an extension of the Church, exists to develop the full potential of all students and prepare them for their God-ordained purpose in the mission of Christ. 

Our Philosophy

The St. James Community values development of the Catholic faith as the way to help children make appropriate moral and spiritual decisions throughout life.  We believe that all people are created by God to be regarded with dignity and respect. This is best developed through modeling the values of our faith. Children are made in God’s image and we value their unique needs and learning styles.  We believe effective learning is achieved through a variety of experiences in a safe environment.  We believe Catholic education is the combined responsibility of family, school, church and the community.
