“When I look back on my time at St. James Academy, the lasting relationships that I have made with friends, teachers, and administrators are still very strong today. Without them my SJA experience wouldn’t have been the same and they all have helped me tremendously to get to where I am today. SJA helped instill a great work ethic in me and challenged me to be creative and solve problems. I was taught integrity and honesty and to treat others with respect.”
