Call for a tour anytime.  Saint James School has a rolling admission process throughout the year.  We do have a waiting list for some grades so get your application in soon!

Tuition Information

For Parishioners

Tuition is only $4,700  for a quality Saint James education  for the 2020-21 and it is really a bargain.  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.

For Non-Parishioners

Tuition for non-parishioners is only $6,200 with the cost of educating a student at Saint James School is closer to $9,000.  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.

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.  


We use FACTS Management System to determine who has the greatest need.  You may also divide your payments to spread across the school-year by filling out the FACTS form.
