Goal of the Admission Process: The goal of the admission process at Saint Andrew's is to enroll those students who are most likely to thrive in our school environment, and whose families embrace the mission and values of our school. In essence, we strive to ensure an excellent match between our school and the families who enroll here.
Factors Considered in the Admission Decision:
To ensure that we enroll students who have the greatest likelihood of
success at Saint Andrew’s, the Office of Admission builds a profile of
each candidate with respect to academic achievement and relevant
character traits. The Admission Committee considers, as appropriate, an
applicant’s academic record, teacher recommendations, achievement
tests, admission assessment, and interactions with current teachers and
Admission Timeline: We are currently reviewing our first pool of applications for the 2016-2017 academic year (those received before February 1, 2016), with decisions to be rendered in mid-March. Once a grade is full, we will maintain wait pools for qualified candidates for grades in which no spaces are available.
Transfer Applicants: We consider transfer applications throughout the school year when space is available. We currently have a few spaces available in select grades. Please contact Lani Mah, Director of Admission, at (408) 867-3785 ext. 208, to discuss availability in your child's grade.
Campus Visits for Parents: As part of the admission process, we strongly encourage prospective parents to visit our campus during one of our Admission Open Houses and/or a pre-arranged school day classroom visit. Please see the Upcoming Admission Events tab to the left for information on our Open Houses. To schedule a classroom visit, please contact the Office of Admission at (408) 867-3785 ext. 208 or 216.
