Sometimes the most important lessons happen outside of the classroom. In addition to our core academic program, we offer programs to support our mission of developing well-rounded students. These programs take place in-school and out-of-school, providing hands-on and real world experiences that enrich classroom learning and expand horizons.
Saint James' offers a variety of after-school programs to its students to provide opportunities for participation in quality, safe, fun and structured activities/sports. Our offerings include activities such as Chess Club for our elementary students, and Lego Club, science, sports and art classes for preschool students. These programs are offered for an additional fee and vary by class. Advertisements for such programs will be communicated via email, folder, and on the School website.
Saint James' elementary students are exposed to a wide variety of courses to enhance their physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual development. We are proud to present a resource program that incorporates spirituality, intellect and the arts in order to round out our curriculum. Students in all grades participate weekly in Spanish, library, physical education, art and religious education.
