The minute anyone walks through our doors there is no doubt that you have entered a Catholic School. Our school has retained the look and feel of a Catholic School since we first opened the doors in 1954. There is an unmistakable sense that time has slowed down and the rapid pace in which we find ourselves in the world today has somehow not fully affected us, allowing for our children to stay children for a bit longer.
First contact is made through an interaction with our office staff, Mrs. Rose Moffatt and Mrs. Joanne Mascia, both of whom have been professionally associated with the school for over 20 years but more importantly have had a personal investment as parents of students in our school. Their experience as both school parents and employees allows for a unique perspective because in essence they have “walked the walk”.
Our staff is one in which there is a great depth of dedication. These men and women have made a lifetime commitment to Saint James the Apostle School. As you walk through our halls you will encounter a staff that possesses a unique skill set that reaches beyond the academic norm found in other schools. It is our ability to share values that help our children to grow into compassionate, responsible, grace-filled young men and women. We can and do take that step beyond curriculum, homework and testing. In partnership with our school parents we work together to ensure that our young Catholic men and women ready to enter the world with the kind of faith that will help them to weather anything that comes their way. All of this occurs in the midst of an academic program that serves and meets every child allowing them to excel in all that they do.
As you enter our classrooms one will encounter children who have been given the gift of learning and growing in an environment that allows them to stay children a bit longer, mature a little more slowly and enjoy the things that we too quickly find our young people leaving behind. This is a unique world which leaves room for each of our children to grow academically but do so as we did when life was a bit simpler.
Saint James the Apostle School is more than a place where academics live and where children have the opportunity to excel. We are a school family and it is our privilege to not only nourish the mind but to feed the hearts and souls of every child who crosses our threshold. A Catholic education is a gift like no none other and we are proud to be able to offer this unique experience to children everywhere.
