Upper School

Our Upper School (grades 9-12) creates confident idea generators who are self-motivated to set and reach purposeful goals as they deepen their knowledge and skills through their choice of the IB Diploma Programme, AP offerings, honors-level courses, and future-focused curricular offerings. World-class faculty help students discover and develop their unique and individual passions as they graduate to their best-fit college or university.

Developing Confident idea generators

We provide opportunities for notable co-curricular offerings such as Engineering, Robotics, Media Arts, and Entrepreneurial Studies bridging subject areas like math, science, and art. 

Saint Andrew’s School’s academic mission is to provide our students with strong preparation for higher education and lifelong learning. Our students develop skills in writing, analysis, logic, problem solving, and critical thinking, as well as in world languages, theology, and the arts. The rigor of our academic program broadens students’ intellectual capabilities and enables them to acquire knowledge, skills, and dispositions essential for success in college and beyond. 

Saint Andrew’s believes that balance in mind, body, and spirit is critical to a healthy and successful education. To that end, we offer a wide range of extracurricular opportunities for Upper School students to explore their passions in the arts, athletics, and various student organizations, clubs, student news magazine, honor societies, and associations.

Through advisory and assembly programming, faculty and outside experts provide mentorship and guidance, providing a holistic learning environment that is second to none. Driven by our Director of Wellness, our programs help students make the transition from late adolescence to early adulthood with the knowledge and tools they need to lead healthy and successful lives.
