St. James' Episcopal School4

We have three children at St. James and are thrilled with the education and extracurricular activities they are receiving. We are a military family and were welcomed to SJES mid-year with open arms. Be sure to ask about the SAM grant. This is a grant for active duty military families. This grant has made it possible for our kids to attend this fabulous school.
I am a proud parent of two Saint James Jaguars! You must take the time to tour this school with award winning Principal Galen Hoffstadt and meet her excellent staff and teachers. Saint James has aways produced scholars with strong academic credentials while instilling the moral values of integrity, forgiveness, compassion and responsibility. St. James Jaguars go on to excel at their chosen High Schools and become productive citizens beyond. Galen's curriculum incorporates the elements of depth and complexity to help scholars become critical thinkers and problem solvers. Come see Saint James!
New to the Corpus Christi area, we looked at several public and private schools in CC and the surrounding areas before selecting St. James. We have been pleased with the learning environment that St. James provides and our student is thriving.
My son is in his final year at St. James, having begun in kindergarten. It has been an excellent school and I feel he is more than prepared for high school. St. James has an exceptional Central Theme program. My son has been in many of the honors classes and has excelled. I believe the quality of the teachers are partly responsible for that. Parental involvement is a big part of the school. I would recommend St. James Episcopal School to not only anyone looking for a great education for their child, but also a safe and nurturing school.
