St. Andrew’s Episcopal School is an independent, coeducational college preparatory school for students in Preschool through Grade Twelve. The school’s mission is to know and inspire each child in an inclusive community dedicated to exceptional teaching, learning and service. The school seeks a broadly diverse community to promote educational excellence. St. Andrew’s programs are designed to serve students of varied interests and abilities capable of achievement in a challenging academic environment. To create such an environment, St. Andrew’s supports a dedicated faculty and administration that respect and appreciate students.
St. Andrew’s strives to challenge and support all of its students in a balanced program to nurture their academic, artistic, athletic, and spiritual growth. The school believes that developing each individual’s intellect, character, and sense of self-worth encourages each to live a creative and compassionate life. Because St. Andrew’s values the benefits of community, the school encourages students to lead lives of responsibility to each other and to the larger community.
With the founding of The Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning in 2011, St. Andrew’s has conducted original research studies with faculty at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education and The Johns Hopkins University. Through the CTTL, St. Andrew’s teachers have trained thousands of teachers including many at the area’s most prestigious peer schools.
