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.

Donations in Honor of Carey and Charba Families

Proverbs 3:5-7 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.”

In lieu of flowers, the Carey and Charba families have graciously asked that donations be made to St. James Episcopal School. You may send your donations in the form of a check, made out to St. James Episcopal School, and please note on your check “In Honor of Carey/Charba Family”.  To allow us to keep these funds separate, please do not use our online Greater Giving account. All donations will be acknowledged to the families.

The Carey and Charba families and our School are so grateful for your constant prayers, your ever-present support, and the many kindnesses you have shown throughout the past few weeks.  We know that the Carey, Charba, McComb, Schulz, and McNeil families are so appreciative of every thing that has been done to help and they feel your love. God bless you all.
