The Catholic Faith Community of St. James Academy weaves Christ’s message into the fabric of each school day so that the whole child can develop in body, mind and spirit. Working within an educational program that integrates spiritual, moral, academic, social, cultural and physical precepts, the faculty and staff assist parents in the education of each child.
We believe… In modeling Christ’s teaching, we strive to prepare children to live in the world as responsible citizens and as faithful stewards of creation in an ever changing environment. We provide a student-centered, Catholic-based curriculum which values cultural and intellectual diversity in our commitment to excellence.
We encourage… St. James is a fully accredited, Catholic elementary school (K-8) that has been serving the San Diego North County Coastal community since 1952. St James employs fully credentialed teachers — 8 with masters degrees. The Academy is part of the vibrant St. James Catholic Community. Faculty and administration are diligent in their commitment to ongoing academic improvement and take great pride in providing a warm, personal, yet challenging, educational environment for the Academy’s student.
We care… The St. James faculty is united in faith values and dedicated to the principles of Catholic education. This includes instruction in the basic tenets of the Catholic faith in addition to teaching respect for all individuals and encouraging compassion and social responsibility. All faculty members are committed to their own growth as teaching professionals. They work closely with parents to provide the best possible education for the students.
