Students, faculty, parents, and alumni often describe Saint James as a family, and as a home.

More than just words, these characterizations capture the essence of Saint James, and speak to the close and supportive relationships you will find among students, and between students and faculty.

At Saint James, learning extends beyond the classroom. From opportunities in arts and athletics to weekend activities, student clubs, and special events, our students lead active lives that help them grow into well-rounded individuals.

As Saint James was founded 180+ years ago, we also have many traditions that help define the experience, including Lessons and Carols, Maroon vs. White Field Day, and graduating from the Senior Steps.

Biggs Student Center

The Biggs Student Center, located in Kemp Hall, is the primary social hub and gathering spot for students on campus. During the school day, students grab a snack, catch up with friends, or work on homework. In the evenings and on the weekends, it’s where many of our student life activities take place, with students hanging out, playing video games or ping pong, or watching TV together.
