This ensures that every student will have a different mix of classmates from one year to the next, and allows us to put twin students in different classrooms when desired.

Earliest drop off is at 7:40. Our school office is open until 3:30 pm.

Is St. Andrew an accredited school?
St. Andrew School is accredited by the Ohio Catholic Schools Accrediting Association. St. Andrew School’s accreditation plan for Academic Performance and Catholic Identity provides our staff with a path of professional development and goals to lead our school to success in identified areas. Our goals currently center around growth-mindset and The Great Commandment. Throughout the accreditation process, our team assesses the progress of our school in the growth of these areas.
Do we need to be Catholic for our child to attend Saint Andrew School?
No, many of our families are from other faith traditions, or non-practicing, and we welcome them into our school community. Non-Catholic children abstain from receiving sacraments, but are able to attend Mass and religion classes with their Catholic peers.
What neighborhoods do you serve?
Our students come from Upper Arlington, Columbus, Clintonville, Hilliard, Dublin, and we receive bus service from these communities.
What high schools do your graduates attend?
Saint Andrew is a feeder school for Bishop Watterson and Saint Charles high schools.
Both schools are among the finest college preparatory schools in the the Columbus area. Roughly 75% of our graduates go on to study at Bishop Watterson and 25% attend Saint Charles. Other graduates continue their education at other local Catholic or private schools, or a number of local public high schools in Upper Arlington, Dublin, Worthington, and Hilliard.
