St. Andrew's Episcopal School, the oldest Episcopal School in New Orleans, provides a strong academic program from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade.
Small classes and caring teachers provide a challenging learning environment where children grow intellectually, socially, and spiritually.

The academic program at St. Andrew's gives our students a strong foundation which, upon graduation, opens doors for them at competitive independent, public, and parochial schools.

St. Andrew's seeks to help each child acquire knowledge and problem-solving skills.
Our goal is to foster a desire for learning.
The curriculum stresses critical thinking, strong work habits, and personal responsibility.
