"For the sole purpose of Education is simply this: to teach men how to learn for themselves; and whatever instruction fails to do this is effort spent in vain."

St. Andrew School is a classical school in the Catholic tradition.  We are committed to classical learning as a teaching pedagogy and an educational philosophy, and we teach from the perspective of Catholic Christianity. Both are essential to our mission, our curriculum, and programs, and our policies.

At St. Andrew School we focus on the academic, moral and spiritual aspects of our students. The school's policies for student life attempt to create and reinforce intellectual and moral virtues, guided by the calling of the Christian life. Virtues are the key for success and excellence in academics as well as every endeavor our students might choose for themselves after high school. St. Andrew School also offers physical education for all grades, and organized basketball teams, which compete with local schools.

St. Andrew School is a private institution that is not affiliated with the Catholic Diocese of Helena. Our tuition structure is designed to keep the school affordable for Helena-area families, and is graduated according to the number of children attending the school. (For current tuition fees, please contact the school.) Scholarship assistance for qualified students is available.

St. Andrew began its ninteenth year of operation on August 27, 2014.  Our enrollment is currently over 189 kindergarten through twelfth graders. The school is located on the west side of Helena, Montana, at 1900 Floweree St.  We employ a full-time administrator, fourteen full-time faculty, seven part-time or adjunct instructors, as well as support staff. The school is a non-profit organization, and welcomes applications by students of all races, ethnic, or national origins.
