Welcome to St. James Episcopal Day School! 

At St. James education is characterized by a love for learning, a devotion to our Christian faith, and a commitment to fostering the unique gifts of each child in our care.  We strive to develop an educational journey that our students find inspiring, entertaining, and challenging.

At St. James we provide an educational experience that allows each child to thrive.  Our students are nurtured by teachers who practice both the art and the science of modern educational instruction, and who are dedicated to providing an engaging and stimulating atmosphere.  We are committed to an academic program that reflects innovation, fosters critical thinking and creativity, and, above all, meets the individual learning style of each student.  Our students graduate both prepared and excited to face the challenges of our ever expanding world. 

St. James Episcopal Day School has an atmosphere that you truly have to experience to believe.  The warm, loving environment brings out the best in both student and staff. As many have said, and continue to say: It all begins at St. James.
