What to Pack

In order to help you determine what items of clothing your child will need while at St. Andrew's, and how much your child will need of each, we offer the following suggested packing lists for girls and boys. Current students helped us to compile these lists using their own experiences. However, these are suggested packing lists only—depending on your child's style, preference, and inclination to do laundry, your final packing list may look much different. While we know that our dress code is more formal than that of the average high school, new students should feel that they can come as they are to St. Andrew's.
