About St. James

St. James Episcopal Day School offers a loving, personalized learning community for students ages 18 months through 5th grade designed to propel bright minds to explore their curiosity and give them the academic and leadership preparation needed to succeed in middle school and beyond. As one of the oldest private schools in Baton Rouge, our seven-decade-long legacy of academic excellence means that we have been preparing the future leaders of our city for generations. That history grounds us and gives us the foundation we need to educate the leaders of tomorrow and prepare them to meet 21st-century challenges.

Our School Mission

St. James Episcopal Day School, a ministry of St. James Church, is committed to developing
each child’s unique gifts by providing a strong foundation combining academic excellence and spiritual formation within a warm, loving, Christian community.

The Episcopal Identity

Episcopal schools ground their commitment to our students and community in our promise as Christians to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself. We strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being. 

As Episcopal schools, we also are the beneficiaries of a strong intellectual tradition, characterized by questioning and probing further into the ideals and beliefs that ground us.

Our tradition at St. James is one of graciousness, generosity, and humility—we do not possess all of the answers, and we are eager to learn from each other.  A sense of belonging is essential to creating a strong, welcoming climate at our school that promotes learning and prepares our students for their futures. 

We pledge to respect the dignity of every human being, including how we differ from one another, as well as how we share a common humanity and reflect the image of God. It serves as a guide to our daily need to act with compassion, love and integrity.

St. James Episcopal Day School provides equal employment opportunities to employees and applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, gender, pregnancy, age, national origin, disability status, genetic information, protected veteran status,
