Upper School Curriculum

At the Upper School, our goal is to prepare students for the demands of college-level coursework and life beyond the classroom. We challenge students intellectually but also help them develop the life skills they need to reach their potential. Students enroll in classes that span English, history, math, science, languages, and art. Many of our classes are Advanced Placement, which can earn some students college credit.

Philosophy and 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.
