The admission process at St. Andrew’s is designed to give prospective students ample opportunity to learn about programs and to connect with students, faculty, and staff. Applicants are accepted to grades six through postgraduate on the basis of academic achievement and potential, community commitment and service, and extracurricular activity. An applicant’s admissibility is determined by a holistic review of school records, teacher recommendations, and an interview. St. Andrew’s School seeks to enroll students from a variety of backgrounds, whose unique perspectives enrich life at the school.
St. Andrew’s School requires that three teacher recommendation forms (English, math, and one additional) be submitted as part of the admission process. If you are applying online, you may email your request and a link to the form to your teachers. Should your teachers prefer a paper copy, you may print the recommendations directly from your St. Andrew’s School account.
Your transcript should include your grades from the last two years as well as your most current grades for the present academic year. If you have attended more than one school in recent years, you may need to contact each school to obtain the appropriate transcripts.

Please contact our Admission Office either by phone (401-246-1230) or by email to schedule a campus visit. This visit will also include your interview. For the 2020-2021 academic year, we will be happy to arrange a Zoom or Skype interview.
To help make the application process as simple as possible, the Admission Office assigns all candidates who submit an online inquiry for the upcoming admission year a username to access their St. Andrew’s School account. This account includes an online application checklist and electronic access to the candidate’s admission decision on March 10.
Log on to your account and click on the Admission Progress tab to view the candidate’s application checklist. When you are ready to apply, simply click on Fill Out to activate St. Andrew’s online application. The checklist should be reviewed and checked regularly. Each item on the checklist will have a green check mark next to the item once application materials have been received and processed. Applications and supporting application materials are processed in a timely manner; however, processing may take several weeks from December through January when volume is high.
Please note that if you submit the St. Andrew's School application, you should not also submit the SAO (standard application online), as only one application may be accepted and processed using our online system.
St. Andrew's School asks that you submit all application materials in advance of the February 1 application deadline.
