For more than 75 years, St. James School has served as a community of faith and learning with a focus on higher academics and the formation students as citizens of the world. The mission of Saint James School, rooted in Jesus Christ, is to nurture the whole child by providing a quality academic education while living the Gospel message. We practice Catholic doctrine, however, we are inclusive and welcome families of all faiths, ethnicity and race into our school family. St. James is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. We invite you to further explore how our community may serve your family.

"Our family moved to Stratford from MA ten days before our eldest son started Kindergarten. The transition occurred without a hitch for my son, and I owe it all to the loving embrace of the Saint James community, in particular, the teachers and the wonderful families that attend this school.

We have been welcomed into a school community that nurtures our sons academically, emotionally, and spiritually. The Christ-like behavior and the values the boys have learned, as well as, the special friends we have made, makes me proud to be a part of this great school.

In the past 2 1/2 years since our move to CT, Saint James has become our new family. We look forward to watching our boys do great things here--for themselves, their teachers and fellow students and their community. They will undoubtedly touch many more lives as they take those Christ-like values into adulthood. I know this because I have met many Saint James students and alumni who are doing just that.

What more could we possibly ask for in our children's school? God bless Saint James!" -Parent, Jessica Curran
