Head of School

Dear Prospective Parents and Students,
Welcome to St. Andrew's. We look forward to sharing our St. Andrew's story with your family as you continue your educational journey. Since its founding in 1947, St. Andrew's mission has been our constant guide, enabling the school to honor its core values while charting a path into an educational future still to unfold. Grounded in our Episcopal heritage and committed to an educational environment that values all facets of a child's development, we are reminded each day that these formative years serve as the foundation for an entire lifetime of learning.

As you continue your search for the perfect school, we want St. Andrew's to become fully known to you, enabling your family to make informed educational decisions that are right for each child. On our two campuses you will encounter a diverse community of joyful learners embracing a developmentally appropriate academic program. In addition, the St. Andrew's experience includes a full complement of cocurricular programming through our robust offerings in the arts and our consistently successful athletics program. Along the way each of our Saints is guided by the St. Andrew's Honor Code that reinforces their moral compass long after graduation.

Through it all, I am reminded that a St. Andrew's education is much more than just a stepping stone to the future. Rather, it is a life-shaping experience and worldview that continues today as it has since the school's founding. This is thanks to the remarkable talents of our students and faculty as well as the consistent support and involvement of our parents and alumni.

We invite you to learn more about us and eagerly await the opportunity to learn about your family and the unique talents each child brings to our community of Saints.
