The purpose of St. Andrew’s School is to provide secondary education of a definitely Christian character at a minimum cost consistent with modern equipment and highest standards.
We continue to cultivate in our students a deep and lasting desire for learning; a willingness to ask questions and pursue skeptical, independent inquiry; and an appreciation of the liberal arts as a source of wisdom, perspective and hope. We encourage our students to model their own work on that of practicing scholars, artists and scientists and to develop those expressive and analytical skills necessary for meaningful lives as engaged citizens. We seek to inspire in them a commitment to justice and peace.
St. Andrew’s is committed to the sustainability and preservation of its land, water and other natural resources. We honor this commitment by what we teach and by how we live in community and harmony with the natural world.
If you attend St. Andrew’s, we will push you, extend you, and challenge you in ways you have never experienced. Your teachers and coaches will ask a lot of you; your advisor will encourage you to make deep and enduring commitments to our co-curricular and community service programs. We are convinced that young men and women develop self-confidence and leadership skills when they have the opportunity to face new challenges and set ambitious goals for themselves. If you take on the opportunity of St. Andrew’s, you will embark on a life changing adventure. We look forward to meeting you and giving you a chance to see our beautiful campus and talk with our students and teachers. We think you will like what you find here.
Visual & Fine Arts. Courses are offered in drawing, painting, ceramics and an advanced studio course for seniors who are interested in building a portfolio of ambitious, original work. Student exhibitions run three times a year in the Warner Gallery and are rotated during the year throughout the O’Brien Arts Center. Four visiting artist exhibitions per year are also presented in the Warner Gallery, giving professional examples of the various disciplines we offer our students.
Community Service. The Community Service Program at St. Andrew’s lies at the center of the School’s commitment to encourage our students to reach out and care for others. St. Andrew’s identifies numerous opportunities for students to serve on the local, regional, and global levels. Students can participate in programs individually, as a part of teams or organizations on campus (such as the Student Vestry, musical groups or clubs), as dormitory groups, as a form or sometimes with the entire School.
