St. James the Apostle seeks to develop the whole person by providing students with the experience of learning, living, and loving in a nurturing educational environment. St. James the Apostle challenges students to strive toward academic excellence and spirituality based on Gospel values. All students are taught in a faith-based atmosphere that fosters discipline, respect for themselves and others, as well as responsibility. A Catholic community composed of teachers, administrators, parents and alumni makes a lasting impact on the lives of students.
