SJA’s 60th birthday will be marked by a celebration tonight honoring the artwork and musical talent of SJA students. From the beginning in 1821 to the reestablishment in 1957, the Academy has followed the Episcopal tradition of recognizing the gifts that each child brings to the world. Known as one of the most prestigious schools in Baltimore County, students are offered opportunities to explore academics, the arts, and athletics. The programs provided to students enhance and open young minds to think beyond the classroom and into the world.
“The future of St. James Academy is flourishing. Our school community is one of reflection and innovation and is an ideal environment for children to learn, grow, and blossom into young people. This celebration marks the success of St. James Academy and showcases the whole community,” said Karl Adler, Head of School. Our Artist-in-Residence, Mr. Eli Hess, will culminate the evening with his installation of Geomtree. Mr. Hess has collaborated with students to create an outstanding piece of artwork.
