Mission and Accreditation

The mission of St. Andrew's Episcopal School is to provide an enriched academic program within a Christian environment emphasizing the fulfillment of each student's potential.

Statement of Purpose

St. Andrew’s seeks students of character and intelligence from diverse ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

The school strives to help young people achieve their potential not only in intellectual understanding but also in esthetic sensitivity, physical well-being, athletic prowess and moral decisiveness so that they may lead productive, responsible lives, not only for themselves, but also for their community.

Diversity Statement of Purpose

Grant, O God, that Your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart, that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace.” (1979 Book of Common Prayer)

St. Andrew’s sees diversity as an integral element of community and education, and a vital facet of our mission, core values, and Episcopal identity.  We believe that community diversity manifests in many ways, including ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, family composition, and physical ability.  In our commitment to attracting, fostering, and celebrating all aspects of diversity, St. Andrew’s aims to create an intentional environment of equity and inclusion.

We recognize that this work is constantly evolving as we address the changing needs of a diverse community and as we educate our students to engage with a diverse world.  We believe that our strength and resilience as a community stem from our commitment to respect the dignity of every human being as a child of God.
