Mission Statement

St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic School is devoted to fostering Christian values and academic excellence in a nurturing environment by providing a quality faith-filled Catholic education.

History

The school was constructed in 1925 under the pastorate of Father William Callaghan, 1924-1936. An addition was built onto the school in 1990, adding three classrooms, a conference room, and a handicap-accessible restroom to the main floor.

The Sisters of Mercy were the first faculty members, followed by the Sisters of Cyril and Methodius, until 1999. Presently, the faculty consists of well-trained, dedicated lay educators.
