Student Life/Athletics

Saint James School is part of the Diocese of Portland.  Here is the Student Handbook from the Diocese and the Saint James Addendum.  The parent letter further clarifies the dress code questions that parents had.  The school has a uniform swap each fall to help students with the dress code.  The logo is available at Brady's Screenprint on Route One in Biddeford, online at Winter People and Lands End.


Please be sure to make yourself familiar with these and print out and sign the signatory page on your child's first day of school.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the school.
