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.

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 by December 17th.  

As a part of the application process, an assessment is required for applicants to PreK-3 through 5th grade.  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.

Priority Application Assessment Dates:

  • PreK-3 – November 10th and December 10th
  • PreK-4 – November 11th and December 8th
  • Kindergarten – November 12th and December 9th
  • 1st through 5th grade scheduled on select dates between October 11th through December 10th
