I was the writer of this viewbook for a K-12 private school in Boca Raton, Florida, working for Carnegie Communications. Along with the designer, I visited St. Andrew’s School and interviewed faculty, administrators, parents, students and alumni. They wanted a book that would speak to the school’s deep traditions, as well as to its community spirit.

Just one syllable. A simple, everyday noun, the word conjures up stacks of novels, complex equations, and bubbling lab beakers. Saint Andrew’s School is all that—and much, much more.
A Saint Andrew’s education provides younger students with the core fundamentals of learning and progresses to a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum as students get older. Bu the real difference lies in the extra steps we take to engage the whole child—mind, body and spirit—that make the educational experience so powerful.
At Saint Andrew’s, you’ll find innovative classes that immerse students in the interdisciplinary nature of knowledge; small classes that allow teachers to challenge and bring out the voice of every student; a hands-on curriculum that encourages experimentation and inquiry and brings learning to life; a nurturing environment that stresses the value of personal honor, team work, and respect for others; a beautiful 78-acre campus with new and modern academic and athletic facilities, including the latest in educational technology; a premier athletics program that has been recognized as the best in Palm Beach County twice in the past five years; and a true community of learners. Saint Andrew’s is home to day students from South Florida, residential students from all over the U.S. and from 20 countries around the world, and a large group of faculty families that live on campus. This diversity of backgrounds and international perspectives enhances conversations in the classroom and beyond.
Whether a student attends Saint Andrew’s for 12 years or two, he or she leaves with a new understanding of what “school” can be. It’s the safety of home and the caring tradition of an Episcopal education. It’s the gratification of collaborating with a team. It’s the stimulation one gets from mental challenge. Just one word, one syllable. But so much more.
