St. James the Apostle School is fully accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops Education Department, under the guidelines of the Texas Education Agency. St. James the Apostle Catholic School educates the whole child - mind, body, and soul. We utilize innovative teaching methodologies to reach each of our students. Classroom instruction includes multi-sensory lessons where students work at the highest form of education to create projects through various modalities to demonstrate learning, understanding, and application of key concepts. Students learn digital citizenship, typing, and other computer skills in their technology class. Students excel physically through our P.E. program and are able to explore their creative side through weekly art classes.


St. James the Apostle Catholic School integrates the foundations of our Catholic faith in every lesson fostering a community of Christian growth and love. As a Salesian school, we are blessed to have many Salesian Sisters who serve as teachers on our campus. We follow the three pillars of Reason, Religion, and Loving Kindness. Our school begins every day with a school-wide prayer service where we say prayer, pledge, sing a song, learn about our value for the month, and listen to Student Council share upcoming events. Our students attend Mass every Friday where a different class leads the Mass each week.


St. James the Apostle Catholic School offers various enrichment activities that provide opportunities for each student to shine. In-school opportunities include serving on Students Council, volunteering with our National Junior Honor Society, and taking a lead role in Mass. All students participate in our annual Christmas program held at a state-of-the-art theater.
