    St. Andrews not only has the most incredible ethos but uses that ethos among the student body to do good. The small student population allows no one to slip under the cracks, and it’s the. . .
  • 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. . .

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 of 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 all accepted students' demonstrated need.
