About the Provider

Description: Saint James School (SJS) was founded in 1992, by combining three local Catholic schools into one: Saint Joseph's, Saint Andre's and Saint Mary's. The first letter of each school was used which created the name James and Saint James School was named after Saint James the Greater. In 2010, Notre Dame de Lourdes School also joined Saint James to create the only local Catholic preschool, elementary school and high school in the area.

SJS provides a quality educational experience that teaches the whole child. It integrates faith, service and learning in a value based education that ensures every child that graduates from Saint James School will have the fundamentals needed to succeed in any path that they choose. When you read the names on the honor roll at the area high schools, you will recognize former Saint James students.

I cannot say enough good things about this program! I have sent both of my children here over the past three years and have had a wonderful experience on both occasions. The staff is extremely welcoming and they are all focused on my children’s well-being. Three years ago, my husband was relocated to the area. My oldest child previously hated going to preschool. However, after only two weeks at St. James preschool, my child had an entirely different outlook on school. The program recently expanded so I was able to send my second child to preschool for a full day program. I was also very pleased with this and could not recommend a better place for my children. As a whole, the program is extremely accommodating, and chances are if you ask, they will do whatever they can to help you. Not to mention that the prices are also extremely reasonable given all that the program has to offer!
