SAS advocate here and willing to answer to the best of my abilities any questions from a parent's perspective. My family was traditionally all NE boarding schools and it wasn't until I learned that my father in-law attended SAS did I even hear of the school. I started checking the school's website two years before my oldest could apply. The more I read, the more impressed I became with the school. Someone once remarked to me "anyone who knows anything about boarding schools, knows about St. Andrew's". I've seen and experienced so much of the boarding school scene but I have never witnessed such cohesiveness between the student body and the faculty that I have seen at St. Andrew's. The academics certainly are challenging and their college matriculation list speaks for itself. Tad Roach is the epitome of a headmaster, an educator, leader, thinker, writer. St. Andrew's is a quite little gem that provides exceptional inspiration and challenges to the students lucky enough to attend. For those looking for a small excellent boarding school, I strongly recommend St. Andrew's School. Please check out the website and the new admissions video.
