Frequently Asked Questions
Why does St. Andrew's need a Fund?
St. Andrew's operating budget income is made up of tuition, endowment funds, auxiliary income, and the St. Andrew's Fund. The St. Andrew's Fund accounts for 7% of the budget. To keep tuition levels accessible to our families, there is a tuition gap that the St. Andrew's Fund helps to fill. This gap for the 2019-2020 school year is approximately $3,000 per student.
