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,

Sometimes, when things appear to be challenging, or when we’ve suffered some disappointments, it is difficult to trust. It is hard to be peaceful. And yet, that is just what the Lord is calling us to do—when we’ve locked our doors, and we’re afraid that life is not going to be easy, He says, “Peace be with you,” and “Trust in Me.” So hard to do at times, but definitely a sign that we trust ourselves to God’s mercy.

In this Year of Mercy, a worthy thing on which to focus. This coming week, the students and staff will be focusing on a visit from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. It is the culminating activity in what has been a two-year process of reflection and planning.

As an educational community, we have looked at how we govern ourselves, how we approach curriculum, and how we acquire the resources to provide the children with a strong Catholic education.  And this is just the beginning. We’ve worked hard to take steps to grow to meet the needs of students and families in the 21st century. We’ve made plans to ensure that this will continue long into the future.

The work has been hard, but we have trusted in God’s love and mercy through the process. And we are ready. We are ready to show off who we are as a school community, because we are proud to be a St. James School family.

Peace and Blessings,

Monique Almquist
