Volunteer

Each year, hundreds of parents, grandparents and alumni give of their time and talents to St. Andrew’s.

The school relies on these volunteers to keep our community connected, to mobilize resources to support our mission, to enrich student and parent learning through speaking or other educational opportunities, and to advise the Administration.

There are several volunteer opportunities available for yearly events, activities, and committees organized by the St. Andrew’s Parent Association (SAPA), as well as programs organized by faculty and staff that are in need of volunteer support. Learn more about these opportunities below, and then fill out our volunteer form to get started.

If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer but are not sure where to start, feel free to contact our Director of Parent Relations, Ana Naab, at 240-477-1990.
