Welcome to the St. Andrew's Parents Association

St. Andrew's Parents Association (SAPA) supports and enhances the school community through signature programs and activities involving parents, students, and faculty. SAPA organizes a network of grade parents as well as parent leadership and volunteer support for events sponsored by the school. In addition, SAPA provides an avenue for open, ongoing communication between parents and the St. Andrew’s administration.

Each school year, enthusiastic parents come together through our parent association to actively support and enrich the St. Andrew’s community. It's fun, supported by the entire St. Andrew’s community, and a great way to meet many of our fantastic St. Andrew’s families! We invite you to join us as a participant and/or volunteer, as it greatly enriches our sense of community.

All parents of enrolled students are members of SAPA. Dues are paid with tuition each year. Officers are elected each spring to serve a two-year term. SAPA operates under the general authority of the Board of Trustees and the 501(c)(3) umbrella of the school. The SAPA President serves as an ex-officio member of the Board.
