The St. James Mission is to develop each child to his or her potential, spiritually, intellectually, and physically�that each 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 premier 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 want to 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.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to all of our St. James Families who supported the Annual Giving Campaign- "Investing in Traditions." The purpose of the Annual Fund is to fill the gap between the cost of annual tuition and actual expenses needed to provide a St. James education. This year's goal is $125,000. To date, we have raised $93,000, with 100% Board of Trustees, 100% Faculty, and 64% Parent  participation. We are so grateful for the generosity of our St. James families and for what our future holds together. Next year, we will make 100% parent participation! A complete list of donors will be published in the Annual Report, and can be found in the Jaguar Spirit.

Please join us for this fun event, a great way to get to know each other and to celebrate St. James!
