Student Life

Life at the Day School is not just about Academics. Each week, students participate in chapel services in the historic St. James Episcopal Church sanctuary.  St. James students and their families enjoy beloved school traditions throughout the year including Carnival, a Thanksgiving Feast, Gingerbread Day, the St. James Soirée, Grandparents and Special Friends Day, Easter Parties, and End of the Year parties. 

The 5th-grade year has its own set of traditions including Cap Day, a pinning ceremony, 5th Grade Fundraisers, and an Easter trip to Tunica Hills.  Clubs and other opportunities before and after school keep our students engaged in new experiences and help them form lasting friendships.
