St. James Academy provides an exceptional education for students in prekindergarten through eighth grade. The academic program includes accelerated instruction in math and reading, as well as technology integration with iPads, laptops, Smart Boards, Lego Robotics, and design software for our 3-D printer. The World Language curriculum begins in kindergarten as a cultural exploration, continuing through as a key subject in our middle school. The arts program includes visual arts, chorus, band, instrumental music, as well as three after-school musicals per year.
To further enhance literacy and invest in the arts, the school sponsors an artist-in-residence program and a visiting author series. The Middle School athletics program offers students the opportunity to choose from nine competitive sports. St. James Academy is one of the few schools authorized with the prestigious International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. This program lays the foundation for a student’s success moving on to the highest academic levels in high school, college, and beyond. We promote intercultural understanding and respect, not as an alternative to a sense of cultural and national identity, but as an essential part of life in the 21st century. Our graduates embody the attributes and attitudes of the IB Learner Profile: balanced, caring, communicators, inquirers, knowledgeable, open-minded, principled, reflective, risk takers, and thinkers. St. James Academy celebrates traditions, events, and performances that include the whole family.
