About the Make a Difference Campaign

Saint James School has made a commitment to make a difference in the lives of our students. Through strategic planning and fundraising, we seek to expand and renovate the School’s facilities to meet the needs of our faculty and growing student body. We know that to support new generations the future must include new arts and athletics facilities, a robust annual giving program, and a stronger endowment that provides more non-tuition income for our facilities, students, faculty, and programs.

You can make a difference by giving students an educational and formational experience at Saint James that not only meets their needs, but exceeds them. With your help, the future for Saint James School’s students will include:

  • Construction of the Pohanka Fine Arts Center
  • Construction of a new Athletics facility and renovation of the Cotton Building and Alumni Hall
  • Construction of new faculty housing
  • Increasing the size of the School’s endowment and strengthening annual giving
