Saint Andrew Academy
Orthodox Classical education
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, amen! Grace and peace to you!
Saint Andrew Academy is a new educational non-profit serving Christian families in our area.
Founded in 2020, we were blessed to launch classes in 2021. Now in our second year, we partner with Christian families in our area to raise children in the fear of the Lord.
We are a "home school" cooperative with a variety of programs parents can opt for, from 5 day, 3-day, and 2-day or a la carte options. Each family files their own PSA and uses the Academy for all or a portion of their educational needs.
Our loving teachers are helping our students to thrive, and our whole team is serving God with zeal.

The Academy’s mission, guided by the Orthodox Church, is to offer an excellent classical Christian education to students, empowering them to achieve their God-given potential.
Welcome to timeless truth
Welcome to Saint Andrew Academy, where classical education meets the timeless Orthodox Christian faith.
At Saint Andrew Academy, we believe that TK-12th grade education should develop logical thinking, help students memorize key facts, and develop intellectual and moral virtues.
Our curriculum draws from the best classical textbooks available today, with emphasis on primary sources. Running this curriculum (lit: course of study) is designed to provide a strong foundation in the liberal arts and humanities while fostering a love for learning and a passion for truth.
Students begin their journey with
Logic of English,
grammar and Latin from Classical Academic Press,
Artistic Pursuits, and more.
In middle and high school, they study
the Holy Bible, the Philokalia, the Way of the Pilgrim, the Psalter,
Novare Science, Dr. Jay Wile's Science through the ages,
St. Maximos the Confessor, Dante, C.S. Lewis, and more.
They learn to write, to debate, to speak, to memorize poetry, to defend their views, and to sing.
As an Orthodox Christian institution, we recognize the importance of spiritual formation, piety, and prayer.
We pray Orthros together daily, in the temple, with the priest. We take catechism, study the Sacred Scriptures and divine services, learn Byzantine chant, and practice our faith through ascetic disciplines such as fasting. We have three clergy on staff as teachers.
Our faith is woven throughout the curriculum, providing a holistic approach to education that nurtures the whole person. Our academic calendar aligns with the Church calendar, and our major holidays are holy-days. In study and practice and prayer, we inspire our students to pursue a life of service, humility, and compassion, in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are committed to providing a supportive and nurturing environment that fosters intellectual curiosity, moral excellence, and spiritual depth. Our experienced and dedicated faculty are passionate about teaching and are committed to the success of each student.
We also recognize that every family has unique needs, which is why we offer flexible scheduling and affordable tuition options -- we want to make classical education accessible to all who seek it.
Join us at Saint Andrew Academy and experience the joy of learning, the richness of Orthodox Christian culture, and the transformative power of classical education.
Let us help you prepare your child for a lifetime of learning, service, and spiritual growth.
Through the prayers of our holy fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us!
