Welcome to St. James School

Welcome to the virtual home of St. James School. Located within the borough of Danielson, Connecticut, we provide a dynamic place of learning for children in preschool through eighth grade. Within these walls, we mix Catholic values and high academic standards to create a holistic education experience. St. James School is affiliated with the St. James Parish and Norwich Diocese.

Foremost, we are a community of learners with an enduring commitment to Catholic values. We joyfully engage in service-oriented activities as a vehicle to strengthen our ties to the Catholic Church and the families we serve. We are clear in purpose as we strive to carry out our role providing compassionate service within our greater community.

We invite you to explore what St. James School has to offer.

A Message from Our Principal

Dear St. James Families,

This week, I have important news to share. I have already spoken to some members of the school community about the planning that is taking place for the 2014-2015 school year. Much goes into this process and we have many wonderful dynamics at play. So in an effort to be wise in our processes and decisions, the re-registration process is going to be getting underway early this year.

  • Re-registration will take place from Monday, January 27 to Friday, February 28, 2014.
  • The re-registration fee of $275 is what holds the seat for your child/children.
  • Open enrollment will begin on Monday, March 3.
  • Families should fill out the FACT grant aid application by Wednesday, March 5 for consideration for The Catholic Foundation tuition assistance program.
  • Our preschool program is no longer advertising for 3-year olds. Current families who have 3-year old children will be able to have their children accepted, as a courtesy to keeping families together.

I’m going to thank you in advance for marking these important dates on your calendar now and being mindful of them. This is just the beginning of our process. More information will follow, regarding tuition assistance through the St. James Endowment Fund and the Friends of La Salette.

Peace and Blessings,

Monique Almquist
