Christian Faith and Episcopal Tradition
St. Andrew’s Episcopal School is an educational community that strives to love God and love our neighbors as ourselves. We express our faith and tradition through our chapel services, our community life, and our focus on both spiritual growth and religious formation. St. Andrew’s began within the walls of St. Andrew’s Cathedral, a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi, and we are thankful to have a continuing relationship with the Cathedral.
Principles of honor and integrity are ingrained in the St. Andrew’s Episcopal School experience from pre-K3 through graduation. This Honor Code is the foundation of the St. Andrew’s experience.
