    "St. James Academy has several qualities that build a great high school. The culture and atmosphere is noticeably different than other Catholic schools in the area because the students truly shape the foundation of the school and play a huge role in creating the environment. The sense of community takes its form through several leadership opportunities for students of all grade levels. However, because of the strict foundation that St. James is built on, there is very little room for students to branch out and explore things other than Catholicism. In addition, leadership is exaggerated to the point that it becomes stressful and overwhelming. Overall, this school is still growing and needs time to work out its kinks."

    "St. James Academy was an amazing school to attend. Their mission statement says it all. They center their teachings around the faith and pass it on the next generation of students. The faculty connects to the students on a level you will not find anywhere else. You know they truely want the best for you and care about who you are as a person and help you grow into the man/woman of Christ the church calls us to be. The community system is outstanding. Each year it is improved. Students from every grade level are allowed to intermingle and make relationships to better their high school career. The community system creates life long bonds between the mentor and his/her students. St. James Academy is wildly different from any other high school in this area, and for good reason, this school is doing well. The lessons I learned throughout my time at SJA, I will carry with me for the rest of my life."

    "St. James is an incredible school with a great community and leadership. It is one of the best Catholic Highschools in the Kansas City area. Not only are they successful in academics and athletics, but as well as living out our Faith."

    "I graduated from Saint James Academy in 2012. The school had an excellent community of educators particularly in math, science and theology. The academic curriculum prepares students adequately for continuing their education at the collegiate level. The schools offers several opportunities for students to earn college credit through Johnson County Community College. This allows students to complete some college courses such as introductory English and other general education courses before going to college. The school was definitely in tune with their Catholic foundations while still providing a high quality education to the students. The school tuition was on the more expensive side, but was worth. In addition to the academic and spiritual strengths, the school also had decent sports program with their articular strengths being in wrestling and volleyball."
