St. James Episcopal Day School is a faith-based school serving grades Pre-K 3 through 5th.

With strong academic programs, small class sizes, and a warm, nurturing environment, it’s no wonder we have been recognized as a 2009 and 2015 National Blue Ribbon School. We would love for your child to be a part of our family.

Warm, Nurturing Environment

We would love for you to visit our thriving campus. It’s the best way to see what we’re truly all about. Schedule a private tour at any time during the school day and one of our admissions staff will show you around.
