St. Andrew School is a classical school in the Catholic tradition.
We are committed to classical learning as a teaching pedagogy and an educational philosophy, and we teach from the perspective of Catholic Christianity.
St. Andrew School is a classical school. By classical school, we understand: a commitment to the classical subjects of learning, particularly the Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric); a commitment to the "classical tradition" of learning, which stresses development of skills, particularly those of speaking well, reading well, and thinking well; a commitment to active learning: to the active involvement of each student, faculty member, and parent in the life of learning; and a general commitment to the liberal arts and liberal learning, realizing that the aim of all study and learning is to increase our love of the truth and make us more proficient seekers of it.
St. Andrew School is in the Catholic tradition. St. Andrew School is founded and directed by lay Catholics, neither affiliated nor governed by the Catholic Diocese of Helena.
By our Catholic character, we understand a commitment to Catholic spiritual life, in particular a commitment to the historical Catholic practices of prayer, mortification and good works, as well as Catholic sacramental practices.
