Saint James School has been molding me into a gentleman, one who is going to go out into the world and make a difference.
As my parents drove up to my dorm, I kept asking them if they were sure this was not a university because everything looked so beautiful. The mixture of a natural environment and a welcoming atmosphere made me excited about school.
Before coming to Saint James School, I attended a boarding school in the northern part of Nigeria. It is a fantastic school with a lot of history, but Saint James provided something I was yearning for—the ability to express myself and invite other people into my world. My previous school was all centered on academics, so it was pretty hard to try to go out of the tight academic schedule to do something extra-curricular.
At Saint James, you can be who you want to be here. You can be an actor, chorister, dancer, and an athlete all at the same time. You can express yourself freely here, and you will definitely find other students here who have the same interests as you. I play on the boys’ varsity soccer team and I do indoor track. I am a stage crew member, a member of the Big Sibling program, and I just recently became a tour guide. All these activities have helped me become a better person. The experience so far has been great. Saint James School has been molding me into a gentleman, one who is going to go out into the world and make a difference. There is a sense of community and love in every single activity you do here, and it is just so amazing.
Here at Saint James, you can do anything you set your mind to—you have a lot of people here to support you. All you have to do is push yourself and work hard, and I promise you, you will achieve all your goals and aspirations.
