St. James Day School's Full Profile



St. James Day School says

The Venerable Thomas H. Carson, Rector of St. James Episcopal Church, together with a small group of Texarkanians founded St. James Day School in 1948. At that time, the School offered kindergarten and first grade, and met in the old parish house of St. James Church. A faculty of four handled all instruction, with an enrollment of 32. An additional grade was added each year. Sixty-four years later, St. James enjoys an unequaled reputation in the four-states area for excellent academics serving grades Pre-K through Six.We welcome inquires for admissions to St. James, and will be happy to set up a campus tour for you. "There is, in any population center, a small minority of parents who recognize that there can be a wide variation in the depth, breadth, richness, and spiritual character of education from one school to another, although the marks and diplomas issued by the schools may appear to be the same. These are the parents who want to offer their children every possible opportunity for developing their minds, their bodies, and their spirits to the fullest potential. These parents are the reason St. James Day School exists."




Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
