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.

 Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Friday, November 4th
8:15 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

We are already preparing to receive our very special visitors – all grandparents and/or special friends of scholars – on Friday, November 4th. This day will begin with a reception in Munds Hall Auditorium at 8:15 a.m., then a Chapel Service at 9:30 a.m., and then Scholar-led tours of their classrooms. All scholars need to wear their Chapel uniforms. The day is filled with festive treats, musical performances, pictures with loved-ones and more. It is also a half day, with scholars being dismissed at 11:30 a.m. Also, we are providing valet parking service for those who need it.

One special opportunity we want you to know about is an opportunity for grandparents to give a gift to the Annual Giving Campaign, in honor of our 70th anniversary. Grandparents that want to support our anniversary campaign can enclose with their donation, a photo of themselves with their grandchild(ren). All photos of donors and their grandchildren will be prominently displayed on our “Grandparents Give” board November 4th during the morning, and kept in the Office throughout the year.

 Annual Giving Campaign is Here

We have kicked off our Annual Giving campaign. Please make a donation of ANY amount so that we
have 100% participation in this Fundraiser, it is important for every family to give what they can. If you gave last year, we hope you will consider a 10% increase to your gift this year, to help us meet our increased goal of $145,000.

Here’s Why We Give:

1) Other funding organizations look at our family participation when making grants to us.
The higher our percentage of giving families, the better our chances of receiving outside funds. In
that way, your gift keeps on giving!
2) Every family benefits from Annual Giving. Annual Giving helps pay for important expenses like
teachers’ salaries, and technology, and curricular materials
3) It is easier to achieve goals together. We can always do more when we ALL do a little.
4) Your support of our School is what makes it GREAT!

Here’s How to Give:
1) Fill out the investment card you received in the mail and make a one-time cash or check
2) Make a gift by credit card online – click here to give by credit card now.
3) Make a pledge and pay over the course of the whole year.
