Saint Andrew has a rich history and a strong presence in today’s educational community. Its Spirit- Study- Service values are woven into every facet of life.

Saint Andrew has been described as more than a school, but a way of life. It is the expression of self-sacrificing, good hearted people that make the community of Saint Andrew so special.

Saint Andrew’s dedication to study is exemplified in our small class size that fosters a positive atmosphere for learning where students scaffold their success and gain confidence from a ‘just right’ challenge. Extracurricular opportunities are abundant and help foster a self-assured student.

Our commitment to service and sacrifice is apparent in school projects that are not focused on student reward.

The partnership between teachers and parents is evident by an active school board that serves on committees, such as finance, athletics, marketing, admissions, facilities, events, fundraising, volunteers, middle school advisory and spiritual awareness.

Saint Andrew teachers have a passion for teaching and are dedicated to student success.

An active parent partnership, dedicated teachers and high academic standards ensures that Saint Andrew will continue to hold a prominent place educating children for years to come. We are proud of our past and excited for our future!
