Saint James School Athletics

At Saint James School, EVERYONE PLAYS

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


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). We are also committed to competing against other local public and private schools.
