SAPA's mission is to promote a closer cooperation and unity of spirit among parents, faculty, and students by involving and enabling all parents to be of service to the school and the community.
What is SAPA?
The St. Andrew’s Parents’ Association (SAPA) is an energetic, active organizational community made up of all parents of St. Andrew’s students. Our purpose is to facilitate parental understanding of the school’s goals and achievements, and to provide enrichment, parental support, and financial assistance to all aspects of the school.
SAPA has three major fundraisers each year: Symphony on the Green, Starry Night, and Saints Fest. Funds from these events directly support our school where tuition proceeds fall short. Additionally, SAPA funds also support several community outreach efforts and events, including: Earth Angels, Safe Saints, Faculty Hospitality, the Used Uniform and Book Sale, Classroom and Grade parties, and Back to School Night.
SAPA recognizes that we are a diverse group of parents with different talents, interests, and time commitments. Regardless of personal situation, opportunities abound for support and involvement in the SAPA community. Please join us in making the best school in Mississippi even better!
