James, 25, graduated from Boston College High School and received a bachelor’s in philosophy and Catholic Studies from the College of the Holy Cross. He earned a master’s in education from the University of Notre Dame, where he was an Alliance for Catholic Education fellow, teaching at St. Mark the Evangelist in Harlem, New York. The Jesuits James met at Boston College High and Holy Cross influenced his vocation, as did the Jesuit educational background of his grandfather and parents.
