International Student Host Family

Each year we have a few international students who do not have any relatives living in the United States. The host family acts as a "back-up family" if the student cannot get home for a vacation period or if they need to arrive stateside a few days before St. Andrew’s dorms are open. This is a great opportunity to introduce another culture into your home!

Saints Fund Parent Volunteers

Parent giving is a critical component of the effort to achieve our annual Saints Fund giving goal. Parent participation in giving to the Saints Fund at any level supports all of the programs that make St. Andrew's a unique boarding school experience. Each year, the Saints Fund team is supported by parent volunteers— our Saints Fund ambassadors—who do everything from make calls to boost parent participation and support, write letters to their child's class about the Saints Fund, or writing thank you notes to other parent donors. Our hope and our goal is for all parents feel compelled by their child's St. Andrew's experience to make a Saints Fund gift, of any size, each year.

Admission Ambassadors

Regional Reception Hosts

In the fall, we schedule three to five admission receptions around the country to introduce prospective families with 7th and 8th grade children to St. Andrew’s. These receptions are usually on a week night between November and January and run from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

In the spring, we also sometimes have a cluster of accepted students located in a particular geographical area. When this occurs, we try to organize small gatherings for these accepted students and their parents at the home of a current St. Andrew's parent in that same area. These gatherings happen only between March 15 and April 10.

The dean of admission, head of school, or members of the Advancement team co-host, and alumni and parents in the area are also invited to attend. Room in your home for 20-30 people and access to local feeder schools, church/youth groups, or interested neighbors with children make for a great reception! All in-person events are, of course, COVID-19 conditions permitting.

School Fair Parent Representatives

The Admission Office is often invited to boarding school fairs around the country and the world that we cannot attend due to staff and calendar constraints. Local parent representatives are often equally if not more effective advocates for the school at these events. We are looking for parent representatives who may be willing to attend fairs in your area.

Spring Admission Callers

After a long admission season, the final, and sometimes most important, outreach is the call or email of congratulations from a current parent in March. Spring admission callers contact parents of accepted students to welcome, congratulate, and answer many final questions between March 10 and April 10 while these families are making their enrollment decisions.

Student Life Programming

Parents often have great ideas or access to programs, people, or events that would enrich student life by giving students and faculty valuable opportunities to get off campus. Past examples have included book talks with notable authors in a family’s home, overnight adventure camping on a family farm, a visit to the Pentagon for an insider view with a parent, tickets to local sports events—among many others. If you have a great idea for a student life event, please share it here.
