English Language Learners
Saint James School is Montgomery’s independent school leader in providing a comprehensive English Language Learner (ELL) tutoring support for international students. English Language Learners in elementary, middle, and high school are tutored by an experienced instructor to help facilitate a successful transition to an English-speaking school. Students meet in small, age-appropriate groups on campus during the school day and practice a variety of skills to help transition into our college-preparatory environment.
Saint James School is proud to serve a robust international population which includes students from many sectors of the Montgomery community. Students from all over the world who are in Montgomery temporarily, or those who have made the River Region their home, benefit from the comprehensive international student program offered at Saint James School.
Our ELL tutor provides academic assistance and maintains close contact with classroom teachers and school counselors to identify specific needs of each student. The tutor plays an important role in creating a nurturing environment for international students and supports the school’s goal of being a welcoming home which celebrates and embraces our international student population.
Most years 40-50 new international students enroll in Saint James School.
