Middle school: a critical time. Students are forming the attitudes, values, and habits of mind that will largely direct their behavior as adults. They deserve schools that support them fully during this key phase of life. As a pending member of the NativityMiguel Network (over 64 faith-based schools nationwide), St. James School will strive to mirror these results.*
- 97% attendance rate
- Students graduate at or above grade level
- 79% of alumni graduate high school in four years
- Over 67% of high school graduates enroll in colleges and universities
*Rates of success are nearly 20% higher than the national average for under-served students.

St. James School is a faith-based middle school in the Episcopal tradition, committed to educating traditionally underserved students in a nurturing environment.
