Capital Campaign

Honoring Our Legacy ~ Strengthening Our Future

We have strong support for growing the endowment. In a comprehensive planning study, our SJA family placed the highest importance on growing the Faculty Excellence Endowment (94%) and Unrestricted Endowment (75%).

Our endowment, compared to similar schools, is well below where it should be. Growing endowment will help us compete for the highest caliber faculty and staff, prepare for difficult economic times, and support new programming.

ALL Grades will begin at 10:30 AM, including AM Kindergarten, which will dismiss at 3:00 PM., the regular Lower School dismissal time. It is the AM Kindergarten parents’ decision whether to take advantage of this extended day option for your child on these 2 hour delayed days. ... See MoreSee Less

Message from our Head of School

Each fall I sit down with 8th grade students and we discuss how their years at St. James Academy have influenced them. Students reflect on their experiences at the school and they say things like “my teachers really take an interest in me,” and “I feel safe to take risks.” Students speak with confidence and poise, and they seem curious and joyful.

Our teachers and parents come together to create a nurturing environment where students feel supported as they develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

Head of School, St. James Academy
