The Christian tradition is the foundation upon which St. James Episcopal School builds its educational philosophy. Within this context the School recognizes that learning how to learn is as important for today's society as knowing what to learn. The complexities of life demand that every person be knowledgeable, productive, self-reliant and responsible. The St. James educational program is grounded in tradition, yet remains flexible and adaptive to individual needs. The School helps each student to learn to communicate effectively while they develop the ability to understand, to analyze, to question and to think both creatively and critically. We strive to assist each student's spiritual and intellectual growth. Inherent in the educational process is the obligation to promote the development of positive attitudes and habits and to aid in building sound, sensitive, healthy individuals who will be good citizens in the community. We believe that education, both religious and secular, is a continuous process and that the attitudes and skills acquired during the years of an individual's formal education advance each one toward the realization of his or her full potential."
