A Letter from Leadership

Saint Andrew’s School has a history of being bold. 

This history of boldness can be traced back to The Reverend Hunter Wyatt-Brown’s bold thinking – and even bolder action – in 1961 when the school was incorporated, and a blank canvas of 80 acres first began to take shape. 

For more than 60 years, this same characteristic has permeated our school and community. Saint Andrew’s has continually evolved to meet the challenges we’ve faced. We’ve gone from a small boarding school for boys to a large, three-division day and boarding school serving over 1300 students locally and from around the world. 

During this time, our school has been – and continues to be – at the leading edge of providing high-quality education in an environment that nurtures students in the Episcopal tradition. Educating and advancing the whole student – in Mind, Body, and Spirit – is the foundation upon which our school was established, and it is the foundation upon which we continue to build. Time passes – and faces and places change – but our commitment to being bold and making a difference in the lives of the students we educate endures. 

This commitment is perhaps most evident in our school’s consistent and collective ability to celebrate each child, deliver outstanding academic programs, and foster and expand meaningful and supportive relationships. These objectives and our core values of academic excellence, community, honor, integrity, and respect continue to drive our work, enhance our students’ lives, and help make Saint Andrew’s the extraordinary community of learners that it is. 

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.

The five major strategic initiatives outlined in the 2022 Strategic Plan, and the corresponding action plans and priorities within, affirm our identity, reflect our long-held beliefs, and underscore our commitment to the Episcopal tradition so that we can continue to strengthen our culture and deliver upon our mission. 

With this plan as our guidepost, the steadfast leadership of our faculty, staff, administration, and board, and the ongoing support of our dedicated families and alumni, Saint Andrew’s is well-positioned to continue to provide academic and extracurricular experiences in a transformative setting – one that meets students where they are and helps them see and grow into what they want to become. At this pivotal moment in the school’s history, it is our responsibility that the education we deliver will serve our students well in the decades to come.

If The Reverend Wyatt-Brown could see Saint Andrew’s today, he would no doubt be impressed with how our school has grown and transformed yet remained true to its mission – particularly as we meet the challenges and opportunities of the day.
