The Saint Andrew’s Curriculum: an investment in your child's education.
The Saint Andrew’s curriculum attends to the various facets of human growth and development. Carefully planned activities address academic, artistic, and athletic pursuits. Character education, grounded in the United Methodist tradition of open hearts, open minds, and open doors infuses all aspects of school life.
Learning goals are developmentally appropriate, challenging students to master new understandings and skills while building on previous learning. Lessons are explicitly constructed to meet clearly defined learning goals. Students are provided with numerous opportunities to practice new skills and receive frequent and constructive feedback from teachers and peers. Culminating assessments are varied, multifaceted, and designed to measure mastery of the learning goals.
Extensive interdisciplinary lessons exist across all grade levels, challenging students to apply their learning in multiple academic domains. Our teachers regularly differentiate the learning goals and strategies of lessons in order to address the various strengths and weaknesses of students - creating engaging lessons that capture the imaginations of students, leading to deeper and more nuanced understanding of the learning goals.
Consistent with our status as a Green School certified by the Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education, Saint Andrew’s teachers frequently design lessons that teach environmentally sustainable practices and responsible environmental stewardship.
