  • Davidson College
    I think that the small student body and close knit community of St. Andrew's makes it very unique. With a student body of only about 300 students, you know everyone's name and they know yours. . .
  • Johns Hopkins University
    St. Andrew's is such a unique place, and it would be impossible to choose just one thing that separates St. Andrew's from any other boarding school. The most obvious difference is probably that St. . .
  • Georgetown University
    I believe that St. Andrew's offers a unique campus life because it only accepts full-time boarders. As a result, students and teachers have a unique relationship that feels more like family than familiar. . .
  • Wesleyan University
    The amazing quality of relationships is unique to the St. Andrew's experience. The school's effort to refrain from a technology dependent social culture forces students to interact with each other. Also, the wonderful student-teacher relationships. . .
  • Princeton University
    St. Andrew's has a focus on holistic growth and a dedication to community. The academics are rigorous and engaging, and I made incredibly close friendships thanks to dorm life. But above all I can say. . .

School Notes

  • At St. Andrew's, we seek to cultivate in our students a deep and lasting desire for learning, a willingness to ask questions and pursue skeptical, independent inquiry and an appreciation of the liberal arts as a source if wisdom, perspective and hope. We encourage our students to do the work of scholars, artists and scientists and to develop those expressive and analytical skills necessary for effective communication, judicious consideration of multiple points of view and for meaningful lives as engaged citizens. As an Episcopal School, St. Andrew`s is grounded in and upheld by our Episcopal identity, welcoming persons regardless of their religious background. We are called to help students explore their spirituality and faith as we nurture their understanding and appreciation of all world religions. Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and work together to create a vibrant and diverse community, St. Andrew`s exceptional financial aid program makes this possible, enabling the School to practice need-blind admission and to award tuition grants to meet 100 percent of demonstrated need.
