We are also thrilled to be part of such a wonderful faith based program, which interfaces with our family's values and beliefs so well."

3. In what ways have you seen your children grow in their faith as a result of their experience at St. James Episcopal Day School?

"Exposure to Monday morning Chapel, religious education classes, Friday morning Eucharist and various outreach programs has given our child a strong sense of empathy, fairness, and concern for his friends, teachers and family. He looks forward to hearing the clergy's messages each week, and enjoys taking part in the services to sing or say the prayers of the people for his grade!"

4. The St. James Day School tagline is “Excellence, Faith, Community.” How does your child experience excellence at St. James?

"St. James expects the very 'best' of our child academically, interpersonally, emotionally, and in his faith, yet no one child is singled out in their performance. All are recognized as strong students in their own special way!"

5. What would you tell another parent to encourage them to consider enrolling their child at St. James Episcopal Day School?
