Welcome to St. James School


St. James is a welcoming school community, inspired and guided by our faith. We strive to provide academic excellence while inspiring students to be enthusiastic, caring and active participants in a wide range of sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities.

Our Mission Statement at St. James:

“As an essential instrument in strengthening the Catholic Faith, St. James School exists to develop the whole person as a Christ-centred member of our community.”

T.A.B. at St. James School!

St. James School participates in the Take A Breath (TAB) program. This is an initiative that coaches all students, families, and staff on how to better manage anxiety and stress. This is a growing epidemic in our society, and Jeff and Sonya Thomlinson, of Kelowna BC, have developed an excellent resource to assist us in our awareness and ability to overcome the debilitating effects of stress and anxiety.

St. James School Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Down through the ages, You have called your servants to build up Your house for Your glory.
Be with us now as we build a firm foundation for the future of Saint James School.
Protect those who work for this end.
Reward the many friends of this school community who have generously helped us in the past.
Help us to build a strong community here where the children’s faith will be safeguarded and their academic education will be happily completed.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

St. James, and all the saints:  Pray for us, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
