Dear St. Andrew’s Parents,
There are only a half dozen weeks left in the school year and I am so proud of the hard work, dedication, and resolve our students have shown this year. Together, we have continued to work in partnership to keep our students challenged, supported, and inspired. Thank you for everything you have done in helping create and maintain this vibrant, joyful community.
A few weeks ago, weekend work began on installing new HVAC, lighting, and network systems in our 75,000-square-foot main academic building. These major upgrades to our Middle and Upper School classrooms, offices, and shared spaces will provide a more comfortable, efficient, and dynamic learning environment for next year and beyond. And that will be just one part of a busy summer that includes a full range of Summer Programs offerings for our students and the continuation of The Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning’s signature Science of Teaching and School Leadership Summer Academy, which trains and attracts exceptional faculty from around the world to St. Andrew’s.
Soon we will graduate the Class of 2022, 94 terrific young adults who have contributed deeply to St. Andrew’s and who will attend a wide range of selective colleges next year. On behalf of our senior class as well as our faculty and staff, I invite you to attend our commencement ceremony at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 10 at Washington National Cathedral. I am pleased that Paul Ryan, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and a St. Andrew’s parent in the Class of 2022 and Class of 2023, will deliver the commencement address.
You will find a great deal of information to help both you and St. Andrew's prepare for the 2022-2023 school year on this page. Please review the material carefully, and complete and return all requested forms to St. Andrew's by the indicated due dates.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school with any questions or concerns about the various materials in this communication. In August you will receive a second informational communication which will include reminders and highlights about the coming school year.
Thank you for your strong support of St. Andrew’s, and best wishes for the remaining weeks of school. I hope that summer will bring your family some respite from the packed schedules and fast pace of everyday life.
