We are proud to announce over 130 years of continued excellence in education and Christian faith, tradition and values. At Saint James, we understand the significance of making the right choice for your child's education. We invite you to discover the rewarding experience of a Catholic School education. We strive to create an environment in which all students will thrive academically, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. We aim to provide opportunities whereby they can learn life skills that will serve them well in the future. The goal is the same for all educational systems...to prepare them for life. But what sets us apart is not a difference in the objective, but “the journey” as to how it is reached. Come experience how an education at Saint James can make a difference in your child's life. Come to our open house. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the journey of a Saint James education.
Student Shadowing at Saint James School
Saint James Elementary School Student Shadowing Day is available for all prospective students in grades 3 through 7. Student shadowing is designed to give prospective students the opportunity to spend the day attending classes with a current student (of the same gender) in his or her current grade and experience a typical day. This is a great opportunity for students to meet others and to explore the environment and exciting experiences at Saint James. Students will participate in all classroom activities including academics and specials such as art, library, computer lab, physical education, and music during their time with us. This is a great way for students to understand the Saint James difference.
Students who would like to have this opportunity should contact our Business Office at 732-741-3363 to schedule a day to shadow.
