School Notes

  • As a school founded in 1929 with an extraordinary commitment to financial aid, St. Andrew's believes that academic and human excellence emerge through the collaboration, communication, and shared experiences of a socioeconomically diverse community. The school's culture, abiding spirit, and ambition reflect our study of the nation's best small colleges-institutions that are committed to all-residential education and dynamic collaboration between students and teachers.  
  • St. Andrew's faculty have the expertise, creativity, and qualifications to teach at any level, but they choose to honor the art of teaching, mentoring, and coaching as the foundation of our school. In our residential community, they work alongside students to create a counter-cultural private school, one dedicated to character, leadership, and an ambitious public good. 
  • The energy, momentum, and grace of the school emerge as students learn that together, anything and everything is possible at St. Andrew's. We not only imagine, but actually enact what a 21st century boarding school becomes if students take responsibility for a culture of kindness; a spirit of collaboration, respect, and honor; and a collective commitment to excellence. 
  • In this age of data and analytics, schools and educators are often asked: What is the "value added" of your school? What are the data sets that prove academic excellence? Our response to this desire to measure the work of great students and teachers is to focus on making our pursuit of that work-academic, artistic, athletic, or otherwise-deep, joyful, authentic, and engaged in the life of our democracy. Come see the exhibition of excellence that is St. Andrew's.

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. . .

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. . .

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. . .

What is Progressive Education?
The promise of progressive education is as the students come to the solution, they’re active, they’re engaged, they’re motivated, and they’re learning. Most progressive schools encourage students to explore other areas of their development where young people find focus or uncover the contentment of stillness. It is about learning how to think, not what to think.
