Welcome to SA

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.

    We care deeply about and form decisions based on these core values: 
    - Academic Excellence
    - Community
    - Honor
    - Integrity
    - Respect

Honor System

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.

Episcopal Tradition

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).

Strategic Plan

Now is an exciting time in the life of our school, particularly as we set the course for the next five years and beyond. We have an opportunity – rather, a responsibility – to inspire lives of honor, purpose, and possibility in ways that help our students and community lead positive change and serve others, now and in the future.

Equity and Justice

Saint Andrew’s School is committed to the ongoing development of a culture that honors diversity and affirms the essential dignity of each member of our community. It is among our highest responsibilities to make our school a place that is safe and welcoming for all. Learn more about our work on Equity and Justice.

Board of Trustees

The Saint Andrew's School Board of Trustees is the guardian of the school's mission. It is the Board's responsibility to ensure that the mission is relevant and vital to the community it serves and to monitor the success of the school in fulfilling its mission. In addition to stewarding the mission, the Board is responsible for promoting the school's vision and for fostering a culture that embraces our core values of honor, integrity, respect, community, and academic excellence. The Board is accountable for both financial stability and the financial future of the institution, engaging in strategic financial planning, overseeing operating budgets, and participating actively in fundraising.
Members of the Board make a significant contribution to Saint Andrew’s School and its students. The vitality of the school depends on their commitment and caring leadership. Members of the Board are trust holders of all that is important to the life of Saint Andrew's.
