WHO WE ARE

OUR MISSION

St. James Academy Catholic high school exists to pass on the Catholic faith to the next generation. The community is rooted in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and is dedicated to developing the minds and hearts of young people to know Truth, choose Good and live virtuously in the service of others.

VALUE STATEMENTS

Prayer and Sacraments

We value a life rooted in prayer and the sacraments. We have established a tradition of living the sacramental life on a daily basis as a means to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Truth

We value a rigorous, well-rounded academic education rooted in the liberal arts and Catholic intellectual tradition, balanced with modern innovation, that leads to a discovery of Truth.

Relationships

We value a tradition of cultivating relationships through community and prayer. We intentionally create bonds with our students, staff, and families, united with Jesus and the Magisterium of His universal Church.

Leadership

We value preparing our students to share the light of Christ in the world by following God’s plan for each one of us. They learn and practice the skills to be leaders in their families, parishes, communities, fields of study, and workforce, within whatever vocation God calls them.

OUR VISION (2021-2023 VISION STATEMENT)

St. James Academy will be the leading Catholic high school where students learn to live the Faith, to pursue Truth through the liberal arts combined with modern innovation, and to find a relationship with God, each other, and the adults who love them.
