While it’s impossible to put a dollar value on the faith-centered curriculum and its benefits to students currently and in their lives beyond high school, we can demonstrate the financial impact of the quality academic curriculum at St. James. Consider that 88% of 2020 graduates intend to enroll in a four-year college, while many more others chose two-year colleges or vocational programs or to enter the military.

Colleges offered this class nearly $16 million in scholarships, recognizing their academic, volunteerism, leadership and athletic abilities. The average offer per student for the next four years was $52,933; they accepted $18,700.

We know that families make sacrifices to be part of Catholic school communities. Consider the returns on your investment in St. James Academy!

All freshmen are required to purchase a laptop to be used during high school and will be kept by the student after graduation. Laptops are purchased at a group discount by St. James Academy.

The full cost of the laptop is $1,500.  Families have the option to pay for the laptop in full or in annual installment payments of $400 each year.

Laptop Information

This includes Microsoft Office for Mac, 4-year AppleCare protection, and the required tote bag which protects the equipment throughout high school.

Laptops MUST be purchased from the school in order to ensure uniformity and to keep repair costs down. We will handle laptop repair and will issue a loaner to any student whose laptop needs repair. There may be a per-incident charge depending on the type of repair.

St. James Academy will load any necessary software programs onto the laptops and will control student internet and advanced preference access. At the end of senior year, all licensed programs belonging to the school as well as internet restrictions will be removed before the laptop is released to the student. Microsoft Office will still be available to the student after graduation.

A description of the laptop that will be purchased for freshmen in the class of 2025 follows:

  • MacBook Pro 13-inch with Touch Bar
  • Apple M1 chip with 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU
  • 8GB unified memory
  • 256 GB SSD storage
  • Retina display with True Tone
  • Model number MYDD2LL/A
*If a student withdraws from SJA before graduation, the remaining balance owed for the laptop will be due at that time.


St. James Academy offers several scholarships for incoming freshman, to reward their accomplishments in academics as well as in their faith life and community involvement. All awards are granted to students who complete the application by the deadlines stated.
