Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors group

The Cardinal Society is the Admission Office's Student Ambassador program at St. Andrew's School. With over 150 members, it is one of the largest student clubs at the school. It is made up of students from every grade, from diverse backgrounds, representing all facets of the St. Andrew's program. Their mission is to welcome prospective students and parents to St. Andrew's by giving tours and sharing stories that reflect the experience and values of SAS.

The Cardinal Society is led by a great team of senior Head Ambassadors, who nominate themselves to organize tours, train tour guides, and best represent the culmination of a well-rounded and successful St. Andrew's education. We are proud to introduce our 2022-2023 Head Ambassadors below. We welcome you to contact them with any questions at Head-Ambssadors@standrews-de.org.
