“Not only has St. James laid the groundwork for my schooling through high school at Lincoln Park, undergrad at Loyola University Chicago, and grad school at the school of the Art Institute; it has also built a family for me through the people that I met that are still so important in my life.”

About St. James Lutheran School
The mission of St. James Lutheran School is to provide education with a Christian worldview, preparing students for success throughout their life. Students are exposed to a range of academic disciplines that require them to master information, think critically, and develop the skills to creatively express themselves. St. James educates the whole child by incorporating inquiry-based learning, including three school-wide project weeks and a variety of field education experiences. School culture is expressed through four disciplines – academics, faith, character, and health. Through this focus, students successfully develop cognitive, spiritual, social-emotional and physical attributes.
St. James intentionally keeps class sizes small so that students receive individual attention and opportunities for small group work. Teachers are experts at differentiating instruction and proactively planning lessons based upon students’ readiness, interests, and learning profiles.
St. James Lutheran School has full recognition from the Illinois State Board of Education, National Lutheran School Accreditation, and AdvanED accreditation.

From Our Parents & Students
“When I think of St. James, I think of caring, I think of love. The teachers take the approach of treating each child uniquely, really nurturing them, and giving them a foundation of love first.”
