Welcome to St. Andrew’s College. For more than 100 years we have focused on providing boys with a rich and stimulating educational environment.
Our goal is to ensure that upon graduation our students are thoroughly prepared for university, and will depart St. Andrew’s eager to remain contributing members of their communities and the world for years to come.
While at St. Andrew’s, young men are required to challenge themselves and become involved in an abundance of ways. Recent studies have reinforced the merits of a single-sex education. Not only are students less inhibited and more focused in the classroom in a single-gender environment, but research indicates that those who attend all-boys schools are more than twice as likely to study art, music, drama and foreign languages, in addition to the traditional maths and sciences. This is largely because of the way teachers modify their approach according to the unique needs of boys.
Boys respond positively to more activity-based lessons and variety. When subjects are presented to them in this way, interest levels increase and retention of subject matter is far greater.
SAC students embody the school’s mission statement: “Dedicating ourselves to the development of the complete man, the well-rounded citizen.” A rigorous academic program with multiple Advanced Placement (AP) offerings is complemented by a broad range of co-curricular activities, which encourage and empower students to participate in all facets of school life. Morning, after-school, and evening activities and clubs, including athletics, music, community service, debating, theatre and visual arts, contribute to the development of each student. SAC’s advisory program, and residential and student life curricula reinforce many aspects of the well-rounded education we offer our students. Included in this ambitious program are extensive leadership opportunities through residential life, athletics, and school and club activities.
Perhaps most importantly, our dedicated faculty and staff foster a nurturing environment that helps to establish healthy values and a strong sense of character among our students. This caring community ensures the educational experience we offer our students is second-to-none.
