Why St. James

Daniel R. Sunkel, M.D.
Parent of St. James Students

After moving to Lafayette several years ago and starting our family, my wife Helen and I were faced with deciding into which school we should enroll our children. We were members of St. James, but both my wife and I had attended public schools and were uncertain about the benefits of a parochial school. We worried that St. James might not offer the depth and breadth of educational experiences that we wanted our children to have. We chose St. James, and all three of our children completed their education at St. James. We can state without reservation that our concerns have been dispelled. St. James offers a strong program across all age groups. First, the excellent pre-school programs make for a comfortable transition into the primary grades (K-2) for both students and parents. Teachers get to know the students and their families very well, setting a strong educational foundation. Second, in the middle grades (3-5) get opportunities in science, computer technology, and music that other schools cannot match. In addition, these students benefit from daily contact with upper grade students who can serve as academic and Christian role models. Finally, the upper grade (6-8) students are challenged academically. The classroom and extra-curricular program builds confidence, spiritual maturity, and leadership skills that serve them well as they progress to high school and college. We hope your family takes the opportunity to learn and grow at St. James Lutheran School.
