Our school celebrates its diversity in every grade and encourages students to share their families' heritage throughout the year. The faculty, staff and administration strive to create a family atmosphere at the school where children are celebrated, encouraged and expected to be good citizens. St. Andrew Academy is a place where children love to learn and learn to love!To accommodate working parents, we offer a nurturing, safe environment with a Before-School Program beginning at 6:45 a.m. (even on delayed openings in the winter!) and an After-School Program available until 5:30 p.m. Along with a supervised homework hour, students can participate in after-school enrichment activities like Band, Choir, Piano, Karate, Girl Scouts, Cooking Club, Newspaper Club, Get Fit Club and more.We are firm believers that it "takes a village" to raise a child.
