• A Day in the Life at Saint James School

    What's it like to be a student at boarding school?

    By choosing to live at Saint James, you gain a second home--and a second family of friends, teachers, mentors, and coaches who are focused as much on your happiness as your performance in the classroom. Saint James students fill their days with a productive balance of learning, community, fitness, and downtime, developing lifelong habits of organization, dependability, and time management.

    Daily Schedule

    Saint James School daily schedule

    This is an example of a daily academic schedule during a typical school year. In the afternoons and evenings, students participate in athletics, attend voluntary chapel, eat dinner, and go to study hall.

    Life at Saint James is meant to keep you engaged, and you will soon develop a sense of belonging whether it is on a sports team, singing in the choir, or having fun with your friends on weekend activities.” -- Coco Z. '21
