School culture is visible along our brick pathways: students stopping to say "hello," a favorite teacher spinning in stride to acknowledge a friendly greeting, or two well-wishing dorm mates exchanging a subtle fist bump.
These moments reflect a community in which kindness is the currency, strength of character is celebrated, diversity is evident, and civility never gets old.
Saint James Mission
Saint James School prepares young men and women for success in college and inspires them to be leaders for good in the world.
We do this within a small and familial residential community that encourages their moral and spiritual growth.
On my honor, I will not lie, cheat or steal and I will report anyone I witness doing any of the three.
O God because without you we are not able to please you,
mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may
in all things direct and rule our hearts;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
O God our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home.
Under the shadow of thy throne thy saints have dwelt secure; sufficient is thine arm alone, and our defense is sure.
Before the hills in order stood, or earth received her frame, from everlasting thou art God, to endless years the same.
A thousand ages in thy sight are like an evening gone;
short as the watch that ends the night before the rising sun.
Time like an ever-rolling stream, bears all its sons away;
they fly, forgotten, as a dream dies at the opening day.
O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, be thou our guide while life shall last, and our eternal home.
(680, The Hymnal 1982; The Episcopal Church)
