Welcome to St. James Catholic School. Our school has been an integral part of our community since 1910, the year 14 students graduated. Most parents would agree they want a good education for their children but ask what ingredients make up a ‘good’ education. Although there is plenty of room for debate, St. James Catholic School believes that an essential ingredient to that success is teaching our children with Christian values give them a foundation for a strong, healthy life. St. James Catholic School exists because hundreds of families in this area believe in the value of a total Christian education for their children. They believe God does have a place in the classroom. They believe no education is really complete without spiritual instruction and moral guidelines as part of a five-day-a-week curriculum.
