There is a shared belief in the St. Andrew’s community that a personalized approach, as defined by the mission, insists upon uniting life experience with the learning journey. Application of the core skills of character, communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical-thinking and problem-solving are discovered through tangible connections to nearly every aspect of the student’s life. Every task undertaken by the community to support the student is intentional and every step of the adventure of the supported. Global citizenship is a living, breathing, and textured phenomenon at the school, and students “feel” the aspects of growth and learning rather than simply witness or observe as bystanders.
Student life at St. Andrew’s is dedication to after school and auxiliary programs to enrich experience, clubs and honors to hone and recognize student talent by leading, serving, and engaging, local, regional, and global service, innovative connections of dining services to curriculum, use of experiential education adventures for fun, challenge, and reflection, a respect for community health and wellness, and a diverse array of summer opportunities to cultivate sustainable learning.
