Saint James' Episcopal School deeply values its Episcopal identity. Because Saint James' was founded as an Episcopal school, it recognizes and respects the multicultural backgrounds and many faiths of its students and is supportive of all religions. Episcopal schools by nature integrate the physical, social, academic, and spiritual development of the whole child and collectively share:
- a belief in the equality and dignity of all human beings,
- a commitment to grow in service to others
- a commitment to provide opportunities for worship, and
- an atmosphere of free inquiry in all academic pursuits.
Episcopal schools exist not merely to educate, but to demonstrate and promulgate the unique worth and beauty of all human beings as creations of God.
