The Mission of St. James Academy is to pass on the Catholic faith from this generation to the next while holding the highest standards of educating students. The full infusion of the Catholic faith in every lesson, interaction and relationship are central to fulfilling this mission.


What are We Looking for in New Teachers and Staff?

  • Practicing Catholics who are committed to lighting the fire of our faith in the minds and hearts of young people.
  • Licensed teachers who are experts in their field and passionate about sharing that knowledge with students.
  • Engaging educators who know how to stimulate young minds through active learning.
  • Organized adults who can inject the love of their faith into their lesson plans.
  • Enthusiastic leaders who are willing to continue their own learning and apply that new knowledge.
  • Responsible problem solvers who are able to utilize technology and data to make creative decisions in their daily activities.
