    St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School will celebrate its 33rd annual Earth Day on Wednesday, April 23. Since 1982, the school has suspended regular classes for one full day each year of learning and fun in celebration of the environment. This year’s festivities will kick off with an Earth Day Eve Film Festival. The morning of Earth Day begins with a bike-in to campus. A special chapel meeting will welcome speakers Max Poppel and Dan Rose, founders of the The Crash Pad in Chattanooga and adventure tourism entrepreneurs and advocates. The public is invited to this free lecture. The rest of the day includes workshops (23 to choose from), a student-prepared feast, a celebration of music, dance, and creative writing, and fun in the sun.

  • Through the Eyes of Teacher and Student

    When the Rev. James Harold Flye died in 1985 at the age of 100, The New York Times described the retired Episcopal priest, teacher, and lifelong mentor of Pulitzer-prize winning writer James Agee as a small, modest man with wispy white hair, and kindly blue-gray eyes who lived a life of quiet obscurity. Fr. Flye spent 36 years of his life teaching at St. Andrew’s School (on the campus of what is now St. Andrew’s-Sewanee) and the photographs he took while a teacher there are on display in the SAS Gallery through April 30. Fr. Flye’s photographs appear alongside photos taken by current SAS students. A reception for the exhibition will be held on Wednesday, April 30 from 7-8:30 PM, following the school’s 8th grade exhibitions.
