We’re excited that your family is considering St. James Academy.  Our events are a great way to learn about our school and community. We invite you to visit our campus and explore our academic program and learn more about our community system, and our enriching faith-based education. We recommend that all students and parents attend at least one different event throughout the admissions season. Due to limited capacity, we encourage you to sign up early.


The shadow program is a wonderful way for your 8th-grade student to immerse himself or herself at St. James Academy for the day. Your student will be matched with a current Freshman or Sophomore Ambassador who shares the same interests and will be their guide for the day. Your student will have the opportunity to ask questions, tour our campus, attend classes, and gain insight into the student experience at St. James, not to mention lunch is on us.

To schedule an 8th-grade shadow visit, you will need to begin the application process and create an account.

Opens Aug. 15th.

Take a Look Tuesday

This is an opportunity for parents to learn more about St. James Academy’s mission and teaching philosophy, tour campus, and classrooms, and get details on the admissions process. Deciding on a high school should be a fun and engaging process and we understand how important this decision is for your family. You and your student are an important part of our Catholic family’s future.
