Admission Process

Saint James School admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin.

Students who are parishioners of Saint James (Davis), Saint Anthony (Winters) or Saint Peter (Dixon) Parishes receive admission priority because Saint James School receives financial support from each of these three parishes. In addition, priority will be given to siblings of Saint James School students.

Grades One through Eight

Parents must complete an application for any student applying to grades One through Eight. A test is given to all applicants. The test is administered to verify appropriate grade placement and to determine whether Saint James School can meet the needs of the transfer student. In addition, students applying for grades Seven and Eight are interviewed by the school principal.


All incoming Kindergartners must be five years old by September 1st. We administer a test to all applicants to help determine individual readiness for our all-day kindergarten program.
