Here are a couple virtual tours of Saint James School.  The 2023 tour shows the school fully out of pandemic restrictions.  The 2022 tour still has remnants of the pandemic but it gives you a sense of this amazing school. 

This four minute video shows all the precautions that Saint James School put in place so students were able to go to school during the pandemic.  Saint James School was in session for students five days a week!

Tuition Information

For Parishioners

Tuition is only $5,400  for a quality Saint James education  for the 2024-25 school year and it is really a bargain.  The actual cost of educating a child is over $8,000 a year.   We are only able to offer this because of the support that we receive from Good Shepherd Parish.  The goal is to make an affordable education available for all families. A multi child discount is also available!

A Saint James School education is affordable and a great investment in your child's future.  


The tuition policy is the same as last year.

For Non-Parishioners

Tuition for non-parishioners is only $6,900 for the 2024-25 school year with the actual cost of educating a student at Saint James School is over $8,000 a year.  This is still a bargain for a quality well-rounded education!  Payments can be spread on a monthly basis through FACTS Management listed below under Financial Aid. 

Here are the tuition rates -

Financial Aid Information

There are also limited funds available for financial assistance.  We already reduce the tuition a great deal but our goal is to make a Catholic education accessible to all.  Please prayerfully reflect on the amount of assistance that you need and fill out the application online.  


Also, we are most appreciative to those people that pay a little extra to help a family in need.  Some families have chosen to pay the actual amount of $8,000 to help out the school and the parish.  We are grateful.


We use FACTS Management System to determine who has the greatest need for financial assistance.  You may also divide your payments to spread across the school-year by filling out the FACTS form. Information has to be submitted online before financial aid is dispersed.  Our financial aid committee meets in mid May to disperse available funds.
