Middle School

Academics

Aside from a rich and challenging curriculum, Middle School students experience a strong sense of collegiality and connectedness among faculty and peers.
Welcome to St. Andrew’s Middle School!

St. Andrew’s Middle School, which comprises grades 6 through 8, is built on strong teacher-student relationships. Class sizes are small and student engagement is high. Continuing their quest as scholars, artists, athletes and servants, students are able to experience a challenging curriculum, daily chapel, physical education or athletics, meaningful community service, small advisory groups, and have diverse choices in foreign language and fine arts.
