Diversity and Inclusivity

St. Andrew’s is a close-knit community of students, parents, and teachers of many faiths, cultures, races, and economic backgrounds. Founded in the Episcopal tradition, St. Andrew’s is inclusive and supportive of the beliefs of others. Diversity is celebrated, and students are accepting, open to befriending people of many backgrounds.

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.
