Athletic Board

The Saint James School Athletic Program teaches and encourages Christian values as it promotes physical development, athletic skill, team camaraderie, good sportsmanship, and school spirit.

The athletics program is managed by the SJS Athletic Board, established in 1990, with the mission to foster good sportsmanship among teammates and between competing teams. The Athletic Board is run by a dedicated group of parent volunteers and reports to the Principal of the school.
