Honors & Awards

Blue Ribbon Award Winner

In 2010, Saint James School was awarded the esteemed designation of being named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.  This high level honor, which can only be won by a school once every five years, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our faculty, administration, students and the whole Saint James Community.  So prestigious is this award, that in 2010, Blue Ribbon designation was given to only 254 public and 50 private schools nationwide!  You can read more about the announcement by clicking here.

NEASC Accredited School

“Accreditation of an institution by NEASC indicates that it meets or exceeds NEASC standards and criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer group review process. An accredited school is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.”
