Volunteer Opportunities


We are looking for parents, grandparents, friends, or alum that would be willing to serve on the SJA Auction Committee.  We need to grow our committee in order to make the auction a success.  Volunteer roles would potentially require a 6-month time commitment, which include meeting once a month.  These various committees are: silent auction, live auction, sponsorships, food, decorations, marketing, acquisitions, etc…. There is something for everyone.  We NEED you!

Please join us, no experience necessary.  This is a fun opportunity to meet new families and serve the school. Questions or to sign up? Contact Amber Hellwig at ahellwig@sjakeepingfaith.org or 931-254-4271.

Class Retreats

Please consider how you can help us serve and care for your student and their classmates while on retreat at Prairie Star Ranch. Each grade’s retreat has specific needs and the Volunteer Coordinator, Lisa Kohlrus, details each task. It’s a St. James Academy tradition that parents assist on this event so we’d appreciate your help with continuing that tradition!


Senior Retreat: Sept. 11-13, 2017


School of Faith Breakfasts

Each Community is responsible for providing breakfast during School of Faith on Thursday mornings for staff.  Please sign up to bring something for your student’s Community on their assigned dates.

Dates coming soon!



Serve day is student created, led, and defended. It originated by a group of determined students that wanted to live true to the mission of our school “virtuously in the service of others.” It has continued to be lived out each year since by the Student Leadership class, which organizes a day where both students and staff go out to serve our brothers and sisters in the greater Kansas City community.
