Saint James' started as a preschool in 1982 with just four classes and a staff of five. Today our preschool program has eleven classes and a staff of sixteen. In 2007, we added our first Kindergarten class and officially became Saint James’ Episcopal School (SJES). First grade was added in 2010 with an additional grade added each year. In 2015, SJES graduated our first Fifth Grade class, known as “The Pioneers,” because they led the way for others to follow in their footsteps. In 2018 our church and school communities enthusiastically supported our growing school by financing both preschool classroom renovations and new educational wing construction. The renovated preschool classrooms were ready at the start of the 2018-2019 school year and grades 1-5 moved into their new classrooms in January 2019.
Just as our preschool has always focused on learning through play, our elementary grades are equally committed to the basic concept that children learn best when they are happy, excited and engaged. Saint James’ Episcopal School is now — and has always been — dedicated to providing a loving, faith-based environment for children to thrive. Contact us to learn more >
