An unparalleled 21st century education celebrates each child, embraces the support of family, delivers outstanding programs, and fosters meaningful relationships between students and teachers. To achieve that ideal, Saint Andrew’s School begins with a solid and well-articulated mission: to develop every child in mind, body and spirit.
Recognized as a top private school in the Episcopal tradition, Saint Andrew’s School is a day and boarding school for students in grades Pre-K through 12 and serves 1,285 students from 40 countries and several states in the United States.
Saint Andrew’s campus is located on 81 acres in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida. The school is just five miles from the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean and is easily accessible through three international airports in South Florida.
Curriculum that fosters creative thinking
Our goal is to develop creative thinkers. We believe that to be successful in school as well as in life, children must develop skills that enable them to work with others, bring their individual perspectives to a challenge, and gain a comprehensive and global understanding of historical and current issues. To achieve this, we provide an innovative, international curriculum, which includes Honors, Advanced Placement (AP), and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses.
Opportunities to achieve balance
Our philosophy is that children need a balanced approach to education. We believe that arts, athletics, extra-curricular offerings, service, wellness, and spirituality are complementary and supportive companions to our academic program. In addition to our robust academic offerings, we have 67 sports teams, weekly chapel services, international exchanges, 25 performing arts groups, compulsory service projects, and a number of additional activities such as robotics and video production.
Experiences that build strong character
Our school community fosters an environment based on our founding principle of “honor above all.” We believe in developing character and expect our students, parents, and staff to demonstrate honor in academics, sportsmanship, and decorum on or off our campus.
Immersions that span the globe
We also offer immersion programs that expand our students’ academic curiosity while also satisfying their adventurous spirits. International experiences such as earning wilderness first aid and CPR certification in Bangkok, studying Darwin’s living laboratory in the Galapagos, and exploring the intersection of mathematics and architecture in Frankfurt and Paris offer our students the opportunity to take risks, reach beyond their comfort zones, and leverage their passions into meaningful forms of action.
Alliances that extend our campus
Our membership in Round Square includes a global network of 150 schools in 40 countries across 5 continents. Through a holistic approach to learning through six ideals: internationalism, democracy, environmentalism, adventure, leadership, and service, Saint Andrew’s School and its fellow Round Square schools recognize a responsibility to shape the way the next generation of leaders understand, prepare for, and respond to the world.
Pride in what we do
Our teachers and our families love Saint Andrew’s School and take great pride in the accomplishments of our students. For over 50 years, we have provided an outstanding education for day and boarding students from around the world.
