Suzanne Barry head shot final

 

Welcome all parents and students to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Academy.

For nearly one half of a century, St. Andrew’s legacy of enhanced teaching and learning remains a cornerstone of educational leadership. Your child’s journey begins here; in a place that develops the whole child from PreK-2 through 12th grade. I am proud that at St. Andrew’s, every student is known and valued as an individual. It is the goal of our staff to work with you to create a rich learning environment for all students. Student success is a shared responsibility between the school staff, parents, and students. Supporting this is our unique location on our beloved Indian River Lagoon, creating a culture grounded in responsibility and the promise of possibility.  Our families represent a variety of backgrounds, reflecting the remarkable diversity of the Treasure Coast.

At St. Andrew’s, we are a community of learners, working together to prepare young minds for tomorrow’s world through stimulating, engaging, hands-on, and real-world learning. We challenge our students with high expectations that empowers them as positive leaders, both in and out of the classroom. We provide unique opportunities for students to develop their own academic, creative and physical abilities.  These distinct and diverse experiences help them understand the broader world and set them on the path of becoming 21st century community leaders and innovators.

Our talented and committed faculty, administration and staff cherish the possibilities and promise of each individual student. Each student’s potential is embraced and indeed, fulfilled at St. Andrew’s.  Our outstanding academics are complimented with social-emotional learning that are hallmarks of our school.  We believe our foundational culture of academic excellence must be combined with our moral, ethical and spiritual learning that is vital to our students’ abilities to make wise choices for today and tomorrow’s world.

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Academy’s balanced and blended learning model sets us apart and prepares children for the fast-paced and ever-changing workforce of the future. Our students must develop adaptable skills today to greet the unknown careers, opportunities, technologies and capabilities that await them tomorrow.

St. Andrew’s has paved the road to success for generations of students. Every new year holds exciting possibilities for teaching and learning. Our belief is that education is a joint venture between school and home. The foundation of a successful school is the cooperation between students, staff, parents, and community. Your contributions are invaluable to the success of St. Andrew’s students. As we enter the new school year, on behalf of the staff, we welcome you to join us on the journey ahead.

 

Warmest Regards,

Suzanne D. Barry
