Dear St. Andrew’s Parents,
We are nearing the end of a school year filled with growth and promise.
Our broadly diverse and talented student body embodies St. Andrew’s mission and demonstrates why demand for a St. Andrew’s education continues to rise. Our Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning continues to improve teaching and learning for every St. Andrew’s student while mentoring faculty and school leaders across the globe through the groundbreaking Neuroteach Global virtual program. This fall, our new Lower School building will finally bring all of our students, preschool through 12th grade, together on our beautiful Postoak Campus.
Soon we will graduate the Class of 2019, 74 terrific young adults who have contributed deeply to St. Andrew’s and who will attend a wide range of selective colleges around the country 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 7 at Washington National Cathedral. I am pleased that Christina Goldbaum, an award-winning journalist currently writing for The New York Times and a 2010 graduate, will be our commencement speaker.
You will find a great deal of information to help both you and St. Andrew's prepare for the 2019-2020 school year on the school's Back-to-School Forms page. Please visit the page (which can also be accessed by clicking the "Back-to-School Forms" link at the top of every page on our website), 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 call 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.
Head of School
