One Day Give

In 2016 we launched the first ever 1-Day Student Give for the Call for Thunder! We received outstanding support from our students. We had 310 students participate and they donated $8,935.24 towards the Call for Thunder.  Their sincere generosity made it possible to receive the full $5000 match from a generous donor.  Our students raised a total of $13,935.24.  Their support and enthusiasm for the Call for Thunder was simply amazing. Join us for this year 1DG on Tuesday April 11, 2017!  Learn More

Quarter Carney

The Call for Thunder 40 Day Challenge period ends on Friday, May 5th with the 6th Annual Quarter Carney Celebration from 8:00-9:30am! The Carney is a way for all of the students and staff to get involved and celebrate the Annual Appeal. Just another reason why the community at St. James Academy such a great thing to be a part of!

On November 5th, 2016 we hosted our 2nd ever Roundabout Run! It was the first event that was 100% led by our students. They brought in sponsors, entertainment, and over 200 participants! It was an amazing way to involve our surrounding communities and promote health & wellness.

Late Night

On February 4th, 2017 we hosted our 2nd Annual Late Night at the Academy! It was the 2nd event to be 100% student-led, which naturally meant that it was a resounding success. The Student Advancement Committee managed to bring in 28 SJA CYO teams, totaling in 120 students! Not to mention that it was our first Facebook Live sports event! What a great way it was to spend the weekend building community! View More
