History & Episcopal Tradition

Saint Andrew’s School was founded by the Episcopal School Foundation in 1961. It is the largest independent, co-educational, Pre-Kindergarten-12, Episcopal boarding and day school in the United States.

Founders of Saint Andrew's School


Saint Andrew’s School began as a boarding and day school for boys. It was built out of the vision and hope of one man - The Rev. Hunter Wyatt-Brown. An Episcopal priest, he sought to include all young men, with the founders’ agreement to make the school open to boys regardless of race, and to accept “responsibility to teach and succeed with each individual boy.”

"With God’s help, we strive for justice and peace for all people and respect the dignity of every human being."
- Book of Common Prayer


Saint Andrew’s School is committed to its Episcopal Identity and mission of nurturing our students in mind, body, and spirit. 

We educate toward a larger purpose of spiritual and moral development—toward understanding and compassion, equity and inclusion, respect and social justice, and toward service and meaning beyond ourselves as individuals.

It also means that at Saint Andrew’s, we draw a wide circle when it comes to welcoming students, faculty, and staff from many religious backgrounds, faiths, cultures, and practices.
