St. James Lutheran is a Preschool – 8th grade school serving Greater Lafayette area families. Our passion for education began in 1851 in a one room school house and, while much has changed, our dedication to sharing our Christian faith and love with all who walk through our doors has remained unchanged. There are many fine schools in our county, parents choose St. James because we strive to provide a strong faith basis as well as excellent academics. We are: FAITH centered. FAMILY focused. FUTURE driven. FOUNDATION built.
"St James teaches the Word of God in its purity and puts emphasis on Christ and His saving mercy. Our teachers are wonderful. St. James is a place where one child can be active in sports, music, drama, and more. St. James is a family made up of families - we support one another."
"St. James excels at personal and caring relationships between teacher and student."
"Smaller class sizes, feeling of community based on faith and caring for one another."
"Teachers are great for advocating for their students and able to provide more one on one attention which allows issues to be found and help the children. Great family environment, fun family events. Offer sports and extra curricular activities like a public school."
