St. James Academy Reviews

I graduated from St. James Academy in May of 2012 and still feel as though my High School experience was one that has positively impacted my life and shaped me into the young adult I am today! The entire administrative staff as well as each and every teacher who contributed to my education was always positive, uplifting, and encouraging while teaching proper discipline. Being able to attend this Catholic School educated me not only in common curriculum, but instilled a deep desire to cultivate an organic and fruitful relationship with God. At St. James Academy, openly having a relationship with Our Lord is not only encouraged but HIGHLY sought after! And for an atmosphere such as this, to have trudged through the awkward high school years in, I will be forever grateful!

I am currently a junior at St. James Academy and have had nothing but a great experience. I have never experienced a more welcoming and community- based atmosphere than at St. James Academy. Not only has St. James Academy provided me with an education that prepares me for college, but also brought me closer to Christ in every aspect of my life. Every teacher at St. James Academy personally cares about you and your success. I would not be the person I am today without the incredibly selfless and kind staff at St. James Academy. The community system at St. James Academy gives students the opportunity to meet peers from every grade level while becoming leaders. Everyone truly cares about each other at St. James Academy. I am eternally grateful for St. James Academy and the blessings it has brought to my life!
My experience here was amazing. I am an alum now and have such pride for my high school. I was able to work hard and push myself academically, which led me to get into amazing schools and programs that have been so beneficial to me in college. The culture and familial atmosphere is something I definitely took for granted, and the community system is something all my friends are jealous of when I tell them about it. It provides relationships among students and leadership opportunities like no other school can offer! Obviously, the school exists to pass on the catholic faith, and I can’t begin to express the way my formation has helped me, especially when moving on into a public university. My life revolves around St. James for so many years and I am really only now understanding what a blessing that was. Can not recommend enough. :)
