  • Welcome to a New School Year!

    Both our hearts and our classrooms were full on Wednesday, August 21 when school started back up on both of St. Andrew’s campuses. As always, the sounds of our traditional bagpipers rang through the grounds, kicking the year off on a celebratory note. Friends reunited, parents gathered, and teachers welcomed their students back to their classrooms. On both campuses, we came together as a community in chapel to celebrate the upcoming year.
     
    Though our faculty and staff had been on campus for some time, St. Andrew’s never truly feels like a school until it is filled with our inquisitive and ambitious students. We hope your summer left you feeling refreshed and renewed for another wonderful year full of learning, growth, exploration, and joy.
