HISTORY OF ST. JAMES ACADEMY
Malabon City     
The First Grade School graduation took place in 1931 with 20 graduates while the High School had it in 1933.  In April 1936, the Normal School and the High School departments were moved to Isaac Peral St., Manila, now the United Nations Avenue. This  was the nucleus of  the Maryknoll College which is known today as Miriam College in Quezon City.  The elementary department remained in Malabon and was renamed St. James Academy, in memory of Bishop James Anthony Walsh, M.M., the co-founder of the Maryknoll Congregation with the Maryknoll Sisters still supervising the institution. In 1940 the high school department was added to the school.
When World War II broke out in 1941, the school was closed down but classes continued at the private residence of the Punzalan family and managed by lay teachers while the Maryknoll Sisters were interned by the Japanese in Los Baños, Laguna and at the University of Santo Tomas.
When the war ended in 1945, the Maryknoll Sisters returned and set up the school again. In gratitude to God for the preservation of the school the statue of Santo Niño was erected at the school garden.
Truly, it has put to light its Vision-Mission as “a community living the Gospel values in pursuit of academic excellence at the service of the people of God for the upliftment of the human dignity to attain fullness of life in the human society.”
