Catholic education is centered in the person of Jesus Christ. The first priority of a Catholic school is to foster a relationship between Jesus and our students. Students learn to make contributions to the evangelizing mission of the church. Catholic schools are historically characterized by excellence in their academics as they focus on the formation of the whole child. Education for the whole child forms the spiritual, intellectual, physical, psychological, social, moral, aesthetic, and religious capacities of each child. All curriculum and instruction at Saint Andrew Catholic School fosters the desire to seek wisdom and truth, the preference for social justice, the discipline to become self-learners, the capacity to recognize ethical and moral grounding for behavior, and the responsibility to transform and enrich the world with Gospel values.
