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,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic school year! 

We are accredited by the Connecticut State Department of Education and the New England Association of Colleges and schools, the most prestigious organization in New England that is responsible for accrediting schools. We are very proud that our students score significantly above average on National Standardized Testing conducted annually. In addition, our St. James students perform well athletically and receive recognition for their athletic prowess.

St. James is a school dedicated to providing a faith, safe, and caring environment. We encourage all of our students to become life-long learners and to serve God and others. Our mission statement will be at the forefront of all we do to meet the needs of your child each day and in setting goals for future improvements. Father John O’Neill and I are committed to St. James School and hope that each child experiences many graces throughout the year.

St. James opportunities are state-of-the-art facilities which afford the families and students the best education possible for their children. We are excited to explore our new reading series, Open Court for Grades K-5. This series is highly recommended by the Norwich Diocesan Office. The learning opportunities are endless at St. James Parochial School.

We understand that you have a choice in your child’s education, and we value your decision to entrust him/her with us. Partnering with you will be the key to the success of your child’s journey. We thank you once again for allowing us the privilege to educate your children for another year and thank you for your endless support and cooperation in all our endeavors as we embark upon another school year.

In closing, keep in mind that my door is always open, and I look forward to an amazing 2019-2020 academic school year.
