St. Andrew’s Episcopal School offers an environment in which children develop confidence, achieve academic success, and embrace a lifelong love of learning.
St. Andrew’s is unique not only for its intimate size—we are especially proud of our student-to-teacher ratio of approximately 7-to-1—but also for creating an educational environment in which every child is both known and loved by an experienced and caring faculty and staff. At St. Andrew’s we cherish the Decade of Childhood that our students spend with us, from ages four to fourteen, and we celebrate the remarkable growth that occurs during those ten formative years. We strive to teach each child in a manner that builds on his or her individual strengths, interests, and abilities while at the same time fostering teamwork within the greater School community.
The success of St. Andrew’s students can be measured in their many accomplishments at St. Andrew’s, by the range of selective high schools—public and private—to which they gain admission, and by their record of accomplishment in high school, college, and life beyond. After a week-long observation of St. Andrew’s and its teaching and learning environment, a nationally-renowned educational consultant with over three decades of observation experience said that St. Andrew’s does the finest job of any school she has ever seen of fostering the emotional and social development of children.
St. Andrew’s alumni are grounded with a foundation of emotional and intellectual strength—fostered by a supportive and inclusive Christian environment—that serves them for the rest of their lives.
We hope that you will learn more about this special community, so that perhaps you and your child may become part of over fifty years of St. Andrew’s tradition here in the heart of New Orleans.
