What is a Catholic education at St. Andrew?

A Catholic education at St. Andrew School ensures that your child receives an education where strong academics combine with a religious education focusing on spiritual growth that teaches about God, prayer, Sacred Scripture, sacraments, the Mass, values and service.  Our education includes teaching respect, manners, generosity, social concerns, compassion, and service to others.  Academically we focus  on core standards issued by the state and federal governments, but more importantly, we incorporate God, prayer, and faith into our daily lives. Faith and values are integrated into the strong academics and modeled by the school community across the curriculum on a daily basis.
