Beyond School Form

In January 2019, Head of School Peter Reinke introduced a one-of-the-kind, tuition inclusive program. The Beyond School! program, was gradually rolled out in spring 2019 and was fully established in fall 2019. 
 
Beyond School! is an afternoon program that provides students the opportunities to accrue more math and science skills, become versatile in written and verbal communication, hone, expand and foster their imaginations through visual and performing arts offerings and reflect and dialogue on what it means to be a global citizen in 2020 and beyond, through exposure to a variety of world languages and through building and writing for a school newspaper.

This tuition-inclusive program is fully staffed by our teachers, as well as outside educators who specialize in these fields of study. 
Beyond School! will continue to provide unique opportunities to St. James’ students allowing them to continue their academic fortitude in the classroom and beyond.
