Application Process

We are honored you’re considering St. James for your child! We welcome you to learn more about the St. James experience by exploring our site and scheduling a tour to see our beautiful, historic downtown campus in person.

After your tour, our admissions process continues with our online application. We recommend prospective families submit an application the fall preceding the year of intended enrollment. St. James welcomes students of any race, color, nationality, ethnic origin, and religious background as we seek to have a diverse student body.

Priority admission is given to families that apply by the December 1st application deadline. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis after the priority deadline until a grade level is full. Once a grade fills, accepted students may be placed on a waitlist.  Enrollment offers for those receiving priority consideration are released in mid-December.  

As a part of the application process, an assessment is required for applicants to PreK-3 through 5th grade. Our assessment focuses on developmental milestones to ensure applicants are prepared to begin their St. James experience.  Applicants to the Nest, our early childhood program, do not need to schedule an assessment but are required to tour the school. Assessments are scheduled upon submission of the online application.
