  • St. Andrew's prides itself on being an intentionally small, inclusive and diverse community.
  • Our students benefit from small classes, ranging from seven to twelve students, and twice daily meetings with their academic advisor.
  • With almost 100 course offerings, a dynamic arts program, and a myriad of athletic and extracurricular offerings, students are encouraged to explore their interests, develop their talents, and become their best selves.
