The committed and caring faculty at this school maintains high expectations of all students regardless of academic and behavioral performance. They have created a nurturing environment based on a principle-centered approach employing small class sizes and maximum attention to individual needs. Though not always popular with its young students, the results of these methods are self-evident: 100% College preparation and placement of all graduates. A record I believe is unmatched by any school in the State!

I am pleased with the school! St. James Prep offered a unique opportunity to thoroughly educate our young people while maintaining high standards and expectations. 100% of their graduates have gone on to institutions of higher learning, I can t ask for more than that. It's a warm and inviting community. Students come first here!

This is a very small school. And the teachers are too strict. And force kids to got to church and belive in something they don't I was a student there and I didn't like it at all. I don't recommend this school at all
