A member from the admissions team will schedule a full day visit for students applying for grades 1-12 and a partial day visit Pre-K and Kindergarten applicants. It is recommended to schedule the visit prior to the beginning of January. Visits are scheduled by availability and require a one week advance notice.

Step 4: Required Documents

1. TRANSCRIPT REQUEST

The Transcript Request should be printed from the Admissions section of the St. Andrew’s website and given to the school that the applicant currently attends. The official record of student progress will be returned directly to St. Andrew’s School via email, fax, or mail.

2. TEACHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Teacher Recommendation(s) should be completed by the applicant’s current teacher(s).  If the current teacher has only known the student for a short time, St. Andrew’s will require additional recommendations from previous teachers.
Pre-K through Grade 5 applicants are required to submit one teacher recommendation and applicants for grades 6 – 12 are required to submit a math teacher and English teacher recommendation.  Optional additional recommendations may be completed by someone who knows the applicant in a non-academic context.
The recommendation(s) may be printed and given to the teacher to be returned directly to St. Andrew’s or the electronic recommendation may be emailed to the teacher(s).

 

Affording a St. Andrew’s Education

Providing an independent-school education is a major investment in a child’s future. The cost of educating a student at St. Andrew’s School – with our dedicated and talented faculty, our comprehensive academic and co-curricular programs, and our beautiful campus –  is substantial. However, St. Andrew’s School is committed to providing need-based financial aid to families who might not otherwise be able to afford a St. Andrew’s education. St. Andrew’s has a substantial need-based financial aid budget as a result of our commitment to remaining a community school. Generally, the maximum financial aid awarded is 50% of tuition.

St. Andrew’s School utilizes the FACTS program (a secure, on-line application process) to evaluate financial aid applications. The St. Andrew’s School Financial Aid Committee reviews each case individually to determine awards.  For more information on financial assistance click here.
