Parent Organizations at Saint Andrew's School
Saint Andrew's is blessed with having three parent organizations; the Saint Andrew's Parents' Association; Friends of the Arts; and the Booster Club. Each organization has a specific mission to support your children and the school.
Every parent of a student at Saint Andrew's School is a member of each organization through the parent organization fee. This fee allows each organization to provide both you and your children an enhanced experience through events, programs, and gifts to the school. We encourage you to become an active member by volunteering your time and talents to one or all of these wonderful organizations.
Saint Andrew's Parents Association (SAPA)
The Saint Andrew's Parents Association is composed of parents who work together with the faculty and staff of Saint Andrew's School. They help to enrich both the academic and social life on campus, as well as keep the lines of communication open. For more information, please click on the following link "SAPA"
Friends of the Arts (FOA)
The Friends of the Arts parent organization's goal is to enrich our children lives through programs, classes, equipment, assistance to faculty/administration, and essential funding of the arts. We are a vital part of the arts on campus. As studies have proven, children who are involved in arts reach higher academic achievements as opposed to those who do not participate in the arts. We help to nurture our children's achievements creatively, through mind, body, and spirit benefiting the whole child right now and for the rest of their lives.

Booster Club (BC)
The Booster Club ensures that the basic needs of Saint Andrew's School athletic programs are being met and that special events are coordinated and conducted for specific athletic activities. In this way, the Booster Club not only supports the athletic activities of the school, but it also promotes an uplifting experience for the entire student body.

The Auction is the school's largest fundraiser held in early March of each year. This year the event will feature an extensive silent auction, an exclusive live auction, and spectacular entertainment. We also feature a web-based auction the month before the event featuring a variety of items. The entire Saint Andrew's community is asked to support this event through donations of items to the live or silent auctions, advertising in the journal, sponsorships, ticket or table purchase and raffle purchases. Planning for the event starts at the beginning of the school year and many volunteers are needed to make the event a success. Volunteers are needed to help with planning the event, decorating, advertising, table, raffle sales and more.
From relaxing diversions to eye-popping extravaganzas, there is virtually no end to the exciting array of campus activities. Students and parents alike look forward to a variety of celebrations during the year, including formal all-school events like Saint Andrew's Day, as well as fun-filled festivities, such as Homecoming, the Highland Games, and Grandparents Days. We encourage involvement and full participation of the entire community as we try to add balance and a little bounce to the rhythm of the academic year. While the school itself sponsors many events, our support organizations listed above offer a myriad of other opportunities for great fun together.
