Pre-College Major Electives
Only at Saint James School!
Saint James is the only high school in Central Alabama offering eleven pre-college major electives, allowing students to explore a wide range of potential college majors before ever even stepping foot on a college campus.
In addition to our full range of AP courses, these eleven electives offer students opportunities to explore major areas of post-secondary study, putting them a step ahead when they become college freshmen.
Partnerships with The University of Alabama, Auburn University, and Troy University enabled Saint James School to design superior class options, such as Pre-Law Studies, Robotics/Pre Engineering, Music Technology, Graphic Design, Physical Therapy/Sports Medicine, Visual Storytelling, and Introduction to Business, Marketing, and Finance, among others.
Technology is an important component of many of these elective courses as we prepare students for a bright and successful future.
