Visit the School Toolbox Website (click to access) and type in St. James School Manchester, CT in the search box.  Please remember to order supplies well in advance to ensure they arrive before the first day of school.

The HSA website has been updated with preliminary information for the 2018-2019 school year.

Have a GREAT Summer!


As another year of learning comes to a close we wish to Thank You again for choosing to be part of the Saint James School family, and for the various ways that each of you help make Saint James School such a special place! The past year has been filled with many great learning opportunities: chances for students to grow academically, spiritually, and socially.  Friendships and wonderful, lifelong memories have been made not only for the students – but for the parents and staff as well!`

We wish everyone a healthy, relaxing Summer Vacation and look forward to see you back at Saint James School on August 30th (if you are not using the SJS Summer Program, that is)!
