The library is, in many ways, the center of the Upper School. Housed in the Dell Academic Center, it sits in the middle of the campus offering a wealth of research, study, and inquiry resources to the hundreds of students who utilize it every day.
The library’s goal is to foster a lifelong love of learning and to help students to engage creatively, critically, and ethically in the active exchange of ideas and information that marks modern academic life, both in and out of the classroom.
The upper school library offers a diverse collection of both print and non-print materials to support the curriculum, interests, and needs of the St. Andrew’s community. These include a robust, engaging, and well-curated collection of print titles, ebooks, periodicals, online databases, and reference materials. Additionally, the library encourages hands-on learning, active collaboration, creative problem-solving, and artistic expression with a collection of materials, tools, and technology.
Our librarian collaborates with faculty to integrate information fluency skills into the curriculum, complete research projects, promote student inquiry and self-directed learning, and to build a collection, program, and learning space that actively support student academic achievement and social-emotional growth.
