FAITH FORMATION

At St. James Academy, we believe that educating our staff, students, and school families in the teachings of the church and creating an environment where praying together and sharing our Catholic faith experiences is not only acceptable but the norm. We create an environment for young people and the wider community to grow closer to the heart of Christ.

My husband and I have 5 children, a son in law and daughter in law and 2 grandchildren. They are the joy in our days! I love to snow ski, play driveway basketball, pick up soccer games, shop & travel. I love all things Italian and sharing the work of the Lord in my life with others. I have been a part of the SJA community for 15 years and consider it one of the great blessings in my life.

"Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” Luke 1:38
