Year of Fr. Kapaun

Year of Mercy

St. James Catholic School offers Pre-K through 6th grade curriculum and welcomes students of all faiths.
We are dedicated to the education and formation of the total person in the image of Jesus Christ.
We believe that nurturing Christian values along with excellence in education fosters character and leadership development and inspires good citizenship.
We serve the families of Augusta, Kansas, and the surrounding cities in Butler County.

Our Philosophy:

St. James Catholic School seeks to provide a Catholic learning environment conducive to educating the whole child.  It draws on the wealth of its Catholic and cultural heritage to offer quality formation in academic knowledge and skills, religious truth, Christian values, and personal development.

We believe that children can learn by word and example to live as followers of Christ and take their place in society as productive citizens and active Catholics who can meet the challenges of life with Catholic moral values and principles.

The first responsibility for the overall development of the child rests with parents to develop the child’s intelligence, emotions, will, and respect through subjects taught in the light of the Gospel.

Together with the family, the parish, and each other we will FORM EACH STUDENT INTO A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST who seeks the Truth, grows to love it, and learns to live it.


St. James Catholic School Prayer

Oh sweet Jesus, I love you. Thank you Jesus for giving us the opportunity to attend St. James Catholic School. May it always be a home of truth and love. Bless all those who work in it. Give wisdom and patience to our teachers and staff so that they may always be models of faith and reflect God's image.

Send your Holy Angels to protect and lead us. Draw us to Your Most Sacred Heart and may the Immaculate Heart of Mary keep our hearts and minds pure.  As a Catholic Christian school, we are proud of what we stand for and what others have stood for.  May the Holy Spirit help us discover the gifts You have given us and to use these gifts to serve others.

May you always be the light of our lives. Help us daily, as we continue on our journey to live with You forever in heaven.

In Your Name, We Pray.
