According to a press release sent from St. James, Catholic schools are known for their high academic standards and strong moral values taught to students. St. James School is no different.
According to the National Catholic Education Association, a Catholic education is an added value to students and their families. "Students get a quality education and at the same time are being taught to make good choices. as they show God's love to others."
At St. James, all classrooms are equipped with the latest technological tools in education such as Smart Boards, computers and I Pads. For less than $10 per day, a sound academic and moral education is provided at St. James School.
Anyone who thinks their child would benefit from a close-knit academic atmosphere where students are instructed and nurtured, should take the time during Catholic School's Week to take a look at this local school. The public is welcome to stop by to any of the planned events.
