Building Character & Confidence
St. Andrew’s recognizes that physical education is essential in educating children. Through physical education, play, and team sports, students increase their bodily-kinesthetic aptitudes while internalizing the importance and excitement of being physically fit. They also learn problem-solving and teamwork skills that underscore every aspect of a St. Andrew’s education.
Every student in Pre-Kindergarten–Grade 8 has daily physical education class. Students in Grades 1–5 also have a morning and afternoon recess, and 6th–8th
Grade students have morning break. Students in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten have outdoor play daily in addition to daily P.E. class.
St. Andrew’s also fields five team sports for competition in the Metro League. Students in Grades 4–8 may play co-ed flag football, soccer, cross-country,
boys basketball, girls basketball or girls volleyball.
