“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.”

We are energized and enthusiastic about the future. As we observe our community in action, it is clear that Saint Andrew’s students are independent lifelong learners. They think globally and act locally. They are confident communicators and good listeners. They are bright, empathetic, inquisitive, creative, respectful, principled, faithful, and balanced individuals. Saint Andrew’s students are leaders by example in the classroom, on the playing field, on the stage and in the community; they are our hope for a better future. 

It is through the lens of present and future students and in partnership with our accomplished faculty and supportive parents, alumni, administration, staff and friends that we announce the launch of our new strategic plan - Vision 2020 - a process to build upon our strong foundation and chart the direction of Saint Andrew’s School over the next five years.

This plan is the culmination of months of collaboration, research, and lively debate among parents, trustees, alumni, faculty and friends. We thank all community members who attended the Community Roundtable in April 2013, the Visioning Day in November 2013, and the State of the School in January 2015.

This community effort represents the best of our thinking about how we will meet the challenges our children and our school will face in the future. Thank you for helping us to realize our vision.
