Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors for 2023-24

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 associations on campus. Like our student body, the Cardinal Society is composed of a diverse group of students from all backgrounds and experiences, and representing all areas of the St. Andrew's program. Their mission is to welcome prospective students and families to St. Andrew's by leading tours and sharing stories reflecting the St. Andrew's experience and our shared values.

The Cardinal Society is led by a team of Head Student 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. Please meet our 2023-2024 Head Student Ambassadors below! We invite you to contact them this fall with any questions at
