The Rev. Samuel Bowman established Saint James Parochial School to provide children with an education with religious training. Among its instructors was Henry Augustus Coit who taught classics. Shaped by attendance at Muhlenberg’s Flushing Institute on Long Island, he later became the first rector of St. Paul’s School, Concord, NH.
Following the creation of the daily parochial school, the Commons Schools could no longer use Saint James’ Sunday school house. Click here to read more about education at Saint James.
