Mission Statement

 The mission of St. Andrew's School is to transform lives by providing quality, progressive education to children from families with limited financial resources through a full scholarship for every child.

Our Philosophy

 St. Andrew’s School is founded in the belief that every person should have access to high-quality education, and that social justice and equity in early childhood education sets children up for success in life. 

We embrace children as whole people, allowing students and their families to actively participate in the learning process. In this way, children can share who they are, learn about others, and take those relationships and nurture their needs, their present, and their future.
