Welcome to St. James School - Rockford, IL


St. James Catholic School has provided quality education centered on Catholic values since 1886. St. James Catholic Church, founded in 1853, was the first Catholic church in Rockford.

Our certified teachers work as an academic community within a Catholic community, to provide students with the best program possible. They are bound by charity to one another, to the students in their charge and to the parents. They strive to teach real Catholic attitudes and learning by providing unique and dynamic witness to the spirit of the Gospel. Our teachers’ relationship with administrative staff, other faculty, parents and students is one of good, open communication and love.
