Saint James School Athletics

By requiring daily participation in athletics, Saint James seeks to enhance students’ confidence by simultaneously challenging and supporting each individual.

Athletics serve as an integral part of adolescent physical, social, and moral development. Coaches teach athletes many lessons about character and responsibility. Furthermore, students engage in hands-on experiences where they may begin to comprehend the value of teamwork, sportsmanship, commitment, goal setting, integrity, and discipline.

Saint James offers a wide variety of programs and levels of competition to challenge and help build students' self-confidence. Our boys’ teams compete against Washington, DC private schools as part of the Mid-Atlantic Conference (MAC). The boys and girls also compete in the Independent-Parochial School League (IPSL) which includes St. Maria Goretti, Mercersburg Academy, St. John's Catholic Prep, and the Maryland School for the Deaf. We are also committed to competing against other local public and private schools.

At Saint James School, EVERYONE PLAYS

We all play for different reasons, but the result is the same:

TEAMWORK. DISCIPLINE. TENACITY. TRUST.

75 percent of students play three sports a year
80 percent of faculty coach at least one sport
85 percent play a sport they'd never tried before coming to Saint James
