Saint James' Episcopal School (SJES) is an independent school located in Warrenton, Virginia. We offer intentionally small classes in preschool 2 through grade 5 in a nurturing, faith-based environment. Our goal is to equip students with the skills to do well and the moral compass to do good.

Saint James' preschool provides a loving and nurturing environment to help our youngest learners develop social-emotional skills and achieve developmental milestones. We encourage and provide opportunities for play as an important means of building skills, promoting healthy self-images, and instilling a love of learning.
