"St. James the Less School is a Catholic learning community committed to educating the whole student. Spiritual, moral, social, academic, and emotional needs are nurtured in a Christ-centered environment that respects the uniqueness of each student.
-We value each student as a gift from God with unique spiritual, physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.
-We seek to provide a challenging curriculum with the flexibility to meet the needs of each student through a variety of learning activities and instruction.
-We expect students to demonstrate their understanding of essential knowledge and skills for problem solving encouraging scientific exploration, artistic and musical creativity and appreciation, and physical activity and development.
-We provide an atmosphere of mutual respect among students, staff, and parents by modeling Gospel values and practicing our faith.
-We believe that diversity at St. James the Less will increase our students' understanding of the cultures and beliefs of different peoples.
-We are dedicated to educating the mind, body, and spirit of each child with the hope of nurturing confident, well-rounded, faith filled life learners
