“I transferred to St. Andrews in the Third Grade, and remember enjoying the smaller classes, with a much more personal setting, than my previous school. I cherish the memories and still enjoy lifelong friendships made right there. I am very proud to currently have my son at St. Andrews, as a second-generation student…he certainly seems to enjoy being there, as I once did!”

Robert Fulghum put it best in the title to his #1 Bestselling Book from 1986: “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.” The primary school years of everyone’s life are so important in building the foundation for not only our education but also for our character and very nature. I feel extremely fortunate to have spent these formative years at SAES.
Now, as a parent, I feel that there are many places my children could learn the curriculum necessary to prepare them for middle school. However, my wife and I have chosen SAES for our children not only for the academic excellence its graduates achieve, but perhaps even more so, for the character with which they achieve it. The school, with the positive influence of the church, creates a powerful environment for growth and wonder in both regards. The importance of values such as honesty, integrity and kindness to others are reinforced through all that is done from the chapel to the classroom. This is what sets SAES apart for me, and through my children, I can see that this has not changed.” Ned Spencer

“My years at St. Andrew’s are so important to me because they helped me become the person I am today. From the administration to the teachers to the staff, you will not find a more caring school than SAES. I hope that my children will have an opportunity to attend an institution like SAES!”

Catherine Nichols ’94
High School: Hampton Roads Academy
College: Wellesley College
Grad School: Yale University, School of Public Health
Current Position: Global Health Fellow, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
“St. Andrews Episcopal School instilled in me the values of compassion and awareness from a young age. These values have affected my decisions in academic and professional settings thus far – from volunteering in clinics as a undergraduate at Wellesley College to embarking on a career improving health outcomes for people living in developing countries. I recently obtained a masters degree in public health from Yale University, and I am currently a HIV prevention fellow with the Center for Disease Control, where I find concern for the welfare of those less fortunate than myself to be a daily motivating factor.”

“St. Andrews is more than a school, it is a family. Their talented teachers and wonderful staff provide more than an education. They give their hearts and souls everyday to make our children feel loved. As a former student and parent, this is not something you find at every school, and to me the St. Andrews experience is priceless.”
“I spent all of my elementary school years within the loving classrooms of St. Andrews, and proudly watched as both of my younger sisters continued through each grade behind me. So of course, when the time came to pick an elementary school for my children, I returned to St. Andrew’s. Aside from the major technological advancements in the classrooms and computer lab, not much has changed since I was a child. The halls are still quiet, because the children are fully engaged in their lessons and busy learning. The teachers and faculty are still smiling, because they love their jobs. There are still no lockers, because no child at St. Andrews would ever take what doesn’t belong to them. My children love going to school – which is an invaluable foundation to build their future educational careers on. And I know that they’re STILL safe and in the best care possible while they are away from our home for the day – which is what every parent wants for their child.”
