St. Andrew's Sewanee
St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School is a private, co-educational, Episcopal, boarding and day college preparatory school serving 240 students in grades 6-12. We CHALLENGE our students to fulfil their greatest potential while helping them to cultivate lives of BALANCE and JOY.
In 1981, St. Andrew's School (est. 1905) and Sewanee Academy (est. 1868) combined their strengths to create St. Andrew's-Sewanee School. At the time of the merger, the Board of Trustees adopted the following statement which continues to be the school's guiding pursuit.
The mission of St. Andrew's-Sewanee School is:
to be an inclusive Christian community in which the Episcopal heritage is central;
to provide superior preparation for college;
to provide educational opportunities for those students for whom such experiences might not otherwise be available;
to bring all members of the community to a richer spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, and aesthetic awareness, so that they might lead lives of honor and loving service to God and to others.
We live out our mission through:
Perspective: We celebrate our place while cultivating “world-wise” connection.
Communication: We seek to carefully consider how and what we communicate individually, collectively, and institutionally.
Preparation: We seek to foster resourcefulness as we engage in real work in the real world.
Voice: We seek to further value and empower the many voices in our community.
Well Being: We seek to make every decision with the health and well being of each individual and our school in mind.
