Unique to St. James'
St. James' offers many unique, one-of-a-kind programs at both the Preschool and Elementary school level.
Our tuition-inclusive Beyond School program is without parallel and offers students the opportunity to focus in on an area of their choice, or learn a new skill or subject.
Our Middle School Matriculation Process is without parallel and offers every student and family individualized attention and preparation for the middle school matriculation process. Unlike other elementary schools, St. James' has a designated faculty member to guide families through the process beginning in third grade. Personalized letters and meetings with the Head of School and Assistant Head of School are offered to all sixth grade students.
St. James' at Home offers students in Preschool through sixth grade, the opportunity for full-day remote instruction that includes the full breadth of the St. James' curriculum and includes daily instruction in math, science, art, music and other co-curriculars.
All St. James' educators are well-versed in the RULER program, which works with the whole child to include attention to emotional and social issues, as well as academic.
