Visit St. Andrew's

Dear Prospective Families:  
 
Thank you for your interest in St. Andrew's for your child and family. St. Andrew’s has proactively transitioned to Home Learning while continuing to provide a meaningful, supportive and quality education for our students. Our Admissions team is working remotely and we continue to accept applications and welcome new families during the spring and summer.  Prior to submitting an application, we encourage you to call or email a member of the admissions team regarding space availability in a particular grade and to discuss the next steps in the admissions process. In some cases, admissions requirements will be waived and/or alternative information may be requested.  
 
For now, all in-person tours and shadow visits are cancelled until further notice.  If you have questions about admissions and would like to learn more about St. Andrew’s, we would be happy to set up a time for a virtual meeting.  Please email Kapie Breed, kbreed@sasaustin.org to set up a Zoom Information meeting with an admissions team member.
 
We wish your family well and hope you are staying safe and healthy.  Please do not hesitate to contact me or the admissions team with any questions. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Priscilla
