  • Helping to Preserve the History of Boys Town Trench Town

    Fields Ford '15 repaints the honor plaques at Boys Town.

    "I came expecting to be taken up in the laid back culture of Jamaica. I have been blessed by meeting some wonderful people in a country that seems to have a perpetual unemployment rate of 30 percent. What I either took for granted or did not anticipate is how honorably and enthusiastically our students would take to the tasks they have been asked to meet. They have gone above and beyond expectations. If the world can stay together a couple more decades until these young folks can take over, the world will be a much better place to live."

  • A College Rep for Each Senior

    A representative from Colby College visits with interested students.

    Representatives from dozens of colleges and universities across the country will visit St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School in the coming weeks. In an average year, the school will welcome 50 admissions representatives. That’s just about one college representative for each member of the senior class. The college representatives travel from as far away as the University of Puget Sound and St. Andrew’s, Scotland, to visit with SAS students. Their visits are an opportunity for the students to learn more about the colleges and for the representatives to recruit students from St. Andrew’s-Sewanee.

    Members of the St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School faculty spend hours in other classrooms acquiring new skills to continue to provide an outstanding educational experience for St. Andrew’s-Sewanee students. One of the ways SAS encourages students to be lifelong learners is by modeling this in the school community. SAS budgets $40,000 in professional development funds in addition to funds from other sources. Biology teacher McLain Still, chemistry teacher Jen Bachman, advanced biology teacher Kelley Black, and physics teacher Luke Diamond discuss the science curriculum mapping for SAS.
