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,

We had a wonderful opening week! St. James School has started the year 230 students strong which is an unbelievable blessing by any measure you care to name! 

We welcome Mrs. Blythe Hanley to our middle school faculty. She is the seventh grade homeroom teacher, and her instructional focus is math and science. Also new to us this year are Jill Pratt, who will be teaching Spanish, Cynthia Farrow who will replace Wendi Markley, teaching art and technology, and Samantha Deojay who has joined our extended day staff. Along with our new staff members, we have welcomed many new families to our St. James School community. It has been a pleasure getting to know you all a little, and I look forward to fruitful working relationships as we move ahead. 

It is going to be an exciting year. We stand right on the edge of many wonderful things for our school and community. We feel the air in the building laced heavily with hope, joy, and new learning. I look forward to sharing all of it with you. 

Peace and Blessings,

Monique Almquist
