The hallmark of Saint James School’s academic program is our liberal arts approach, which is designed to provide a sound foundation in all disciplines and to prepare our students for further study at a four-year college. Both rigorous and supportive, the academic program stimulates and challenges students to develop their strengths and to cultivate and improve skills in other disciplines.
