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 Parent or Guardian,

On behalf of the St. James Advisory Board, teachers, staff, and administration, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school! Our school community is always full of promise, excitement, and enormous learning possibilities. I am very proud of all that your children accomplish and of the continued prosperous growth of our school community.

Our St. James Parochial School mission statement integrates the spiritual, academic, social, and emotional well being of each student, based upon the teaching of Jesus Christ. We provide a compassionate learning environment where we encourage children to utilize their unique talents and gifts, to serve God and others, and to strive for academic excellence. As principal of St. James School, I am fully committed to this mission and pleased to be able to instill the foundations for your child’s success. 

St. James serves students from Pre-K to eighth grade. Our school is open to families of all faiths and welcomes newcomers to our parish community. St. James combines a talented and dedicated faculty and staff, a well-developed comprehensive curriculum, athletics, and extra-curricular activities. Religious education is an imperative part of our school mission. Our students receive religious instruction in all grades and receive sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. We are committed to help each child fulfill his or her potential. We have a highly active student council and National Honor Society that plans community service projects and social activities throughout the academic year. St. James graduates are well-prepared for high school and any other academic opportunities that await them.

However, it is also important for me to provide meaningful opportunities to parents and guardians to connect with our school. We welcome your input and feedback and feel it is essential to the success of our school. I would also encourage you to visit our website and connect with us with what is happening in our school.

I am energized when students are in attendance and I enjoy working with your children, the school staff, and the entire parish community.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. Welcome to St. James!

Sincerely,

Linda Joyal

Principal
