We’re excited that your family is considering St. James Academy.  Our events are a great way to learn about our school and community. We invite you to visit our campus to explore our academic programs, learn more about our community system, and our enriching faith-based education.  We recommend that all students and parents attend at least one different event throughout the admissions season.

Due to limited capacity, we encourage you to sign up early.

Thunder for a Day

8th-grade students are welcome to take a visit to campus and experience life as a Thunder for the day! Students will have the opportunity to ask questions, tour our campus, attend classes, and gain insight into the student experience at St. James, not to mention lunch is on us. We encourage all students interested in St. James to schedule a visit. This is the best way to see the “day in the life” of a St. James student. Visits will begin in September and will be available through December.

Registration is required.

Junior High Spirit Nights

All Junior High students (6-8th grade) and their families are invited to our Junior High Tailgate to see the Thunder in action. Students will be admitted to the game at no charge. Parents can purchase a ticket at the gate.
