Welcome to the St. James School website!

St. James School sits adjacent to Academy Hill in the heart of the beautiful historic district of Stratford, Connecticut, convenient to I-95 and Metro North. Our school serves the educational, spiritual, and social needs of nearly 375 boys and girls in grades Pre-K through eight. St. James offers a competitive high school preparatory curriculum that is rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ. We seek to instill in each student a lifelong passion for the Word of the Lord, the sacredness of family and the value of service to others. Our staff recognizes and strives to nurture each child's unique gifts. St. James offers small classes, two classrooms in each grade level, a Kindergarten Early Intervention Reading Program and learning support services through eighth grade to students who would benefit from the extra help. In addition, we offer an after school program and many engaging clubs, music programs and sports activities.Financial assistance is available to qualifying families. St. James welcomes students of all races, ethnicities and faiths. We are a family of believers that seek to know and value each other. A look through our website will introduce a community whose hallmark is a welcoming, Christian environment.

  Open Now Yellow Envelope Urgent Critical InformationREADY! -  We are currently working on the “Summer Packet” that all parents need to be prepared for the school year.  In past years, this packet was a large mailing of many pages.  We are going green this year and saving a few “greens” by going 100% digital.  We will be uploading all the materials normally contained in the packet to a parent portal. The plan is that starting the second Monday of August, 8/11, parents will receive an email with a log-on and password to your own personal student/family information portal. Remember, accounts must be in good standing to be given access to your portal/packet.

suppliesSET! For those “early birds” who would like to get started. the supply list is posted in the emails and bulletins section of the our website All emails and attachments in reverse chronological distribution order are posted HERE.

 

calendarGO! The official calendar is awaiting final approval from the Diocesan School Office.  However, we are confident in announcing that the first day of School for K-8 will be August 28th and Preschool will begin on September 2nd.  Kindergarten parent orientation and Preschool dates will follow with the schedule of events when the summer packet is posted.
