Middle School Learning Center
The Middle School learning facilitator supports students in attaining success while maintaining the academic rigor of St. Andrew's. By working with the student's unique learning profile and emphasizing a strength-based approach, students learn to advocate for themselves and take ownership of their learning. The facilitator communicates and collaborates with parents, colleagues, and outside professionals to provide expertise in interpreting psychoeducational evaluations for the purpose of pinpointing areas of need and designing strategies based on each child's individual strengths.
The Middle School counselor is committed to supporting student wellness through the developmental, social, and emotional challenges of middle school. Students are welcome to request to see the counselor at any time, and teachers and administrators can also refer a student if they think that they need support. The Middle School counselor is also available as a resource for parents.
Our chaplains nurture personal and community growth, foster healing and wellness, sustain those in difficult circumstances, guide students and families through decisions, and help members of our community reconcile themselves to God and others.
With clinics on both campuses, our school nurses maintain cumulative health records on all students and serve as a resource for faculty and staff on medical needs. Nurses see students based on teacher referrals, administer daily medications, monitor acute and chronic conditions within the school setting, help devise plans with medical conditions that may impact the school day, relay guidance as needed on student medical conditions, provide health instruction in classrooms, and coordinate medical needs when students go off campus. Our nurses also work with our greater Student Support Services teams to help recognize students who may need support.
Health and Fitness
St. Andrew's works to continually support the physical well-being of each student by introducing skills, strategies, and information to encourage long-term healthy life-style choices. Using multi-faceted and holistic approaches, students participate in an age-appropriate fitness curriculum that addresses growth and development and focuses on taking care of their bodies and minds. The program is organized by division and is designed to improve aerobic and anaerobic fitness, musculoskeletal fitness, and flexibility. Middle school fitness emphasizes national standards for fitness and sport participation.
