A great education celebrates each child, embraces the support of family, delivers outstanding programs, and fosters meaningful relationships between students and teachers.
To achieve that ideal, a school begins with a solid and well-articulated mission. At Saint Andrew's School, our mission is to develop every child in mind, body, and spirit. This educational philosophy is truly distinctive to Saint Andrew's.
By 2020, Saint Andrew's will be a leader in providing a unified academic community unparalleled in inspiring students to lead honorable lives of purpose and take on limitless opportunities to impact the world.
Saint Andrew’s School is an Independent School founded in the Episcopal tradition. Our mission is to build a community of learners, provide excellence in education, and nurture each student in mind, body, and spirit.
The centerpiece of the Honor System is the Honor Code, which states: “Honor Above All.” The Honor Code represents the highest ideals of moral development, integrity, sportsmanship, and achievement, as well as respect for the ideas, work, and property of others. It is designed to teach students how to live their lives honorably and morally to be successful in college and life.
Saint Andrew’s School was founded by the Episcopal School Foundation in 1961. It is the largest independent, co-educational, Pre-Kindergarten-12, Episcopal boarding and day school in the United States. Schools in the Episcopal tradition are communities where spiritual and moral development are integrated with a challenging academic experience. Saint Andrew’s School is a proud member of the National Association of Episcopal Schools (NAES).
We are pleased to work with Ian Symmonds & Associates (ISA), one of the country’s foremost experts on educational and non-profit strategic planning for leading independent schools, colleges, and universities. This strategic planning process will proceed throughout the 2021-2022 academic year and culminate in the inspirational vision and goals that will drive our work and enhance the future of Saint Andrew’s School.
