SAINT James' Episcopal School (SJES) is a growing, independent school providing preschool through fifth grade. Preschool classes start as early as age two and a half. At Saint James' our students experience the Episcopal traditions of service, compassion, and respect. We enrich the whole child through the joy of learning, creativity, and faith in order to excel and grow in grace.

Located at 73 Culpeper Street in the heart of Olde Town Warrenton in northern Virginia, we have been the leader of our community in early childhood education for over three decades. We are the largest mission of St. James' Episcopal Church and believe that the School, Church and family work together to guide all children to the realization of their God-given potential.
