Lower School Curriculum

Science, math, language arts and social studies comprise the core curriculum in grades 1-6. Reading comprehension, writing and math skills are key focal points that faculty integrate in all their lessons. Enrichment classes include fine arts, foreign languages, physical education, technology and library skills. We use a contained classroom format for grades 1-4, and move into departmentalization in grade 5.

Philosophy & Goals

The St. Andrew’s curriculum is challenging, creative, and comprehensive. It has been crafted to promote the mastery of essential skills and to provide opportunities for students to develop their potential. It also allows teachers to weave in areas of study about which they are particularly knowledgeable or passionate, making for a rich and unique educational experience.

Over the course of their lives at St. Andrew's, our students develop:

  • Christian values and character;
  • essential study skills;
  • an appreciation for the fine arts;
  • physical fitness and good sportsmanship;
  • responsibility, self-discipline, and self-respect; and
  • concern for others through community service.
