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,

The sun feels so wonderful today! Somehow, the sun is able to raise everyone's spirits on days like today. How powerful that warmth is when it takes the chill from our bones!

It’s also a harbinger of spring that it is time to have the conversations about whether or not we’ll be taking any time from April vacation. The answer is no. At this time, there are no plans to take time away from the April vacation week.

The last day of school is set to be June 19. This is a Friday, and it will be a half-day. The eighth grade graduation is set for Thursday, June 11.

We are still ironing out other graduations and move-up activities, but this is where we are at right now. I will keep you up-to-date, as we make things more definite in the coming weeks.

Peace and blessings,

Monique Almquist

Monique Almquist
Principal
