Horse and Pony Show

May 6, 2017

Spring is in the air and the Horse & Pony Show is just around the corner! In the 1920’s, a few well-organized ladies (over a good cup of tea, no doubt) decided it was about time to host a Horse & Pony Show in My Lady’s Manor. The beauty of the green grass against the pristine blue sky makes the perfect backdrop for the well-groomed riders competing on perfectly appointed horses or ponies. And so, the tradition continues nearly every year since on the first Saturday of May. A beautiful day to share with your children…visit our stunning flower tent or enjoy a meal prepared by our own St. James Academy Culinary Crew, while cheering on SJA student riders!

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.

St. James Academy is the type of school that feels like an extended family to its students, faculty, and parents. Its smaller size fosters such a great environment for everyone involved to learn and grow together. The experience extends far beyond the classroom, and it is what makes SJA special.

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.
