In September 1960, under the direction of Fr. Robert McCarthy, St. James School opened, serving three grades. A half century later, St. James continues to take great pride in its school. The school embodies faith, labor, hope, and love--a faith that seeks to spread and deepen the Good news of Jesus; a hope that opens the heart to things greater than this world; and a love for one another and for our children that is a response to God's love for us. With a mindful eye to our proud past and an affirmation of a present grounded in faith, we look to a future animated by hope.
