    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

  • 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.
