St. James Apostle School Mission

At St. James the Apostle School, we are called to grow spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically as members of our school, parish and the greater community.  By combining our Catholic beliefs, strong academics, Christian service, liturgy and prayer, we will become people of faith and lifelong learners who serve the broader community.

St. James Apostle School Vision

We, the St. James the Apostle Catholic School Community, are committed to fostering lifelong learners to become the next generation of leaders by providing a challenging academic program rooted in Catholic beliefs.
