Saint James School

17641 College Rd, St James, MD 21740

Saint James is the oldest Episcopal boarding school in America modeled on the English "public school" plan. Originally a boys' preparatory school and college, Saint James dropped the college division when it reopened after the Civil War. Girls were admitted as day students during the 1970s, and the school became fully coeducational with the addition of female boarders in 1991. The school's traditional core curriculum is designed to provide pupils with a firm foundation in the major disciplines while preparing them for college attendance. Advanced and Advanced Placement courses are available for able students who wish to pursue subjects in greater depth. In addition, upper school electives provide enrichment and allow students to explore areas of individual interest. Beginning in grade 9, boys and girls satisfy a 15-hour annual community service requirement. Chapel attendance is mandatory of all students.
