Affording St. James
St. James is committed to graduating students who use critical thinking skills and problem solving strategies as responsible young adults guided by God’s love.
Thanks to a generous scholarship fund supported by church members and school parents tuition Assistance is available for families unable to pay the full tuition. Applications are available in the office and all inquiries are managed discretely. Tuition Assistance applications for current St. James families must be completed and returned to the office by May 15 to be posted for the following school year. Applications will be considered throughout the year if a family’s situation changes.
2017-2018 Academic Year
Tuition at St. James covers all educational expenses including books, most field education experiences, in-school speakers and use of technology (except the purchase of a chromebook for grades 5-8) in the classroom. Aside from uniforms, there are no additional fees required of our families.
Tuition payments at St. James are managed by FACTS Management Company. Each family is mailed an Initial Invoice Statement from FACTS at the beginning of the summer. The statement lists total tuition and fee balance due to the school for the upcoming school year along with instructions for how to pay tuition in full or enroll in a payment plan online. Please note that each child is invoiced individually requiring that they be enrolled in FACTS separately. Please do not discard your Initial Invoice Statement. No matter which payment option you choose, you will need this statement to make your payment. The invoice number on the statement is required to set-up payment. It is unique to each invoice and can’t be accessed by St. James. The following payment options are available:
|Paying in Full||Semi-Annually||Monthly|
|Due 7/15/17||Due 7/15/17 and 1/15/18||11 Payments Due on 7/15/17 – 5/15/18|
