The Rev. Dr. D. Bruce Macdonald is St. Andrew’s College’s longest-serving Headmaster (1900-1935), as well as the visionary who led the School to the Town of Aurora in 1926. The College celebrated 90 years in Aurora in 2016, so we are giving back to the community by investing in the education of local students. It was Headmaster Macdonald’s vision to develop men of strong and well-rounded character and to this day the College continues to follow his ideologies, which underpins our present day mission: “the development of the complete man, the well-rounded citizen.”
