In this first issue of The St. James Legacy newsletter, Summer 2003, vol. 1, No. 1, Alumnus Pat Conroy, bestselling author, recalls his school days at St. James Cathedral School on Ridgewood St. in downtown Orlando.
"My year at St. James was the happiest in my childhood... every time I visit Orlando, I return to that sacred spot where I first shot a basketball."
"A Century Of Growth At St. James Cathedral School"
Details the history and contributions of St. James in the Orlando area beginning with the founding of St. Joseph's Academy in 1889. St. James School changed its name to the Cathedral School of St. James in 1977 when St. James Church was renamed St. James Cathedral for the Diocese of Orlando. St. James opened Orlando's first Catholic Montessori school in 1989. Some of the many community acts of giving are highlighted in the history such as the St. James Cathedral School Golf and Tennis Tournament to scholarship funds, the Junior Civilian Club 10 district awards for collecting for the needy in Orlando, and the students collecting school supplies for children in the Dominican Republic.
