St. James Academy
After much planning and preparation, Straub Construction has started to move some dirt as we kick off our project at St. James Academy. St. James Academy is a Catholic high school located in Lenexa Kansas. The Academy first opened its doors to a small group of 120 freshman students in 2005. This day in 2005 was a long-awaited day that was met with excitement, trepidation, and wonder, trust me, I was there. Every year since then, the St. James community has continued to grow. Today, there are over 900 students enrolled at St. James Academy.
Dreams Become Reality
As a member of the first graduating class of St. James Academy, I am extremely excited to see and be a part of St. James taking another step toward the future. For four years I had soccer practice on the grass field where the new turf field will be located. Those four years on that field were littered with sprained ankles and dreams of a future field that would take its place. Within a few months those dreams will be realized, and St. James Academy will have a beautiful turf field to be proud of. Straub Construction is thrilled for this project to begin and to play our part in furthering the great mission of St. James Academy.
