Support SAS

O God, who through the love and labor of many, has built upon this Mountain a goodly heritage ... ~ From the St. Andrew's-Sewanee School prayer

Thank You for Supporting St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School

Independent education plays a distinctive role in the educational community, guiding our young people as they strive to reach their highest potential. St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School (SAS) is central to this task.

Like most independent schools, SAS relies on charitable contributions and endowment income to enhance the educational experience, fulfill our mission to provide a top-flight college preparatory program, and maintain flexibility in the operating budget. All donations to SAS are welcome, appreciated, and tax-deductible.

Since its founding, St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School has operated as a not-for-profit charitable organization. Now incorporated under federal and state laws as a 501c (3) tax exempt organization, SAS School receives no federal or state government funding.

The St. Andrew’s Sewanee School Development Office Mission Statement reads:

To enhance the learning experience in the classroom by developing maximum voluntary support outside the classroom. Support may be defined as financial, material, volunteer, or intellectual resources. More simply, we advance the mission of SAS by gathering work, wealth, and wisdom.

Please take some time to review the following pages to learn more about the unique role that philanthropy and volunteerism plays at our school.
