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.
