Family Stories

The Eglin Family

1. What do you love about St. James Episcopal Day School?

"The teachers and staff at St. James make this school so special and unique. Their warm smiles and positive energy touch my heart each day! The teachers ability to make each child feel loved is something I will never take for granted."

2. Why did you choose St. James Episcopal Day School for your children?

"When moving back to Baton Rouge, we searched for a school that would be a good fit for my three children with very different personalities. We decided on St. James for many reasons but one of the biggest benefits is the small class size and loving environment. I felt like my children would all have a chance to shine and be challenged to their own unique needs."

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?

"I think they have been able to see God's work all throughout their day. They see that God isn't just in a church on Sunday. He lives in their teachers, He lives in their friends, He lives in the school faculty, and He lives in their own heart. This is all evident by the love, kindness, respect, and generosity all throughout the school."

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

"I know that each of my children are being taught to their level and challenged right where they need it. The teachers are so good about meeting your child where they are. God has given each of my children a unique set of gifts. St James knows how to use those gifts to encourage and challenge my children."

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

"Your child will have a positive learning environment surrounded by adults who truly love them and want to see them succeed! It really is like a family."
