The St. James Episcopal School mission is to develop each child to his or her fullest potential, spiritually, intellectually, and physically – that each child may grow in grace, enjoy freedom through knowledge, and lead a healthy, productive, and meaningful life.

St. James Episcopal School is a Pre-Primary through 8th grade school that has shaped leaders in Corpus Christi and the surrounding community since 1946. St. James provides that unique combination of academic excellence alongside spiritual formation and sound physical development. Through our exemplary programs, we are developing scholars into persons of high character and preparing them to be servant leaders in the local and global community. If you are visiting our website for the first time, Welcome! We encourage you to explore our website and get to know the St. James Family. We especially invite you for a tour of our campus, to see our classrooms and meet our teachers. To schedule a tour, simply call our office at 361-883-0835. We look forward to getting to know you and how we may serve your children.

This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students.


Inclement Weather – Delayed Start Procedures

Due to our unusual pattern of weather this Spring, we continue to revise our Inclement Weather-Delayed Start policy. Going forward, St. James will follow CCISD delayed start instructions. Our website will also advise instructions. In addition, teachers will  send out group emails and text messages from home.  Please note that our faculty will be following the same safety measures as our scholars. Please do not bring your scholars before the delayed start time. Only leave your scholar in areas where supervision is obvious and apparent. As always, please use caution and good judgment in determining when it is safe for you to travel on inclement weather days. Scholars will not be counted late on these days.
