Welcome to Saint Andrew

Welcome to Saint Andrew School

Hello Everybody!

Saint Andrew is growing! Our enrollment in 2004/2005 was 319 students; in ten short years our enrollment has grown to 485 students, a 52% increase! Enrollment projections for next year are estimated for another 15-24 students. Class size is important to our success and maintaining small teacher to student ratio in core academic subjects necessitates expansion.

Wearin The Green is our annual parish fundraiser that benefits all that is Saint Andrew with this year's fund a need, Beyond the Walls, benefiting Saint Andrew School. Our expansion plans include renovating under used areas that will assist student learning. Our first task is repairing the parapet wall and roof in our 'west wing'.

We recently received an anonymous donation of $20,000 to be put toward our Beyond the Walls campaign! The spirit of Saint Andrew is alive a well!

Please view the video below and return to this page and click the GIVING link if you would like to make a donation to Beyond the Walls.
