St. Andrew has awesome teachers! After going on to high school, my art teacher, principal, and vice principal attended my presentation for my final Sr. art project. It was so kind of them to take the time out of their busy days and spend it with ME! I was very prepared for my journey at USC and am so thankful for the teachers who influenced me during the 8 years I attended St. Andrew!

I am a parent of a graduating 8th grader and a 5th grader, both of whom have been at this school since kindergarten. I couldn't be more pleased with the academic preparedness, quality of education, amazing and attentive faculty and staff, and parental community who come to feel more like family. Beyond a faith-based education, our girls have received important moral and spiritual guidance that will no doubt serve them well throughout the rest of their lives. Always striving to remain relevant and current with our ever-changing technology and social needs, St. Andrew is just doing it right! Would compete comfortably with any Northern private school for anyone new to the area.
