Welcoming Students into an Environment of Success

Dear International Families,

Thank you for your interest in the premier independent school in Central Alabama. Saint James School welcomes children from all over the world. We believe that having students of different nationalities learning together creates extraordinary opportunities for personal growth. Saint James is a school that prepares our students for making the most of the challenges and opportunities they will face in the 21st century, and it is vital that our students possess the skills to collaborate with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Saint James School is known around the world as a school that welcomes international students. 

Saint James School’s college preparatory curriculum and vast array of extracurricular activities offers students opportunities that they would not have within any other school in Alabama. While enjoying our beautiful, collegiate-style campus, students are challenged academically and discover their talents in the arts, athletics, and leadership. Saint James School encourages each child entrusted to our care to reach his or her highest potential.

We would be honored by your selection of Saint James School for your children. We have become the school of choice for many embassies around the world, and we have developed a comprehensive International Student Program to meet the needs of international students and their families. We believe you will find our school to be a safe, nurturing school community where you and your family are welcomed to be part of the Saint James School Family. 

Please enjoy exploring our website, and you will see the unique qualities that make Saint James School so special. Saint James School graduates have opportunities to attend some of the finest colleges and universities. We invite you to be part of this extraordinary school. Welcome to Saint James School!
