Faculty & Staff

Teacher with student

Bouldering with your humanities teacher. Attending the opera with your college counselor. Cooking with your advisor. At St. Andrew's-Sewanee, education goes well beyond the classroom under the guidance of teachers who pride themselves on catalyzing and modeling lifetime learning. SAS teachers aspire to inspire students to be well-rounded and thoughtful world citizens.

Close to 50% of the faculty lives on campus and the other half might as well.

  • SAS teachers and staff members come out to cheer on teams, attend school concerts and plays, and enjoy meals in the dining hall.
  • All faculty members serve as faculty advisors and many serve as coaches or houseparents.
  • The faculty, staff and students come together to form a community that works together, learns together, plays together, and worships together.
  • You can count on an SAS faculty member to be there when you're in need of a little wisdom – whether it's figuring out how to get your research paper started or trying to negotiate a difficult social situation.
  • Few schools offer and encourage the kind of deep, honest relationships that St. Andrew's-Sewanee students enjoy with the adults on our campus; few schools demand the nearly 24-hour-a-day attention that our students receive from our faculty. As a result, the interaction between our students and faculty is unusually vibrant and open.

    Thank you for helping our kids develop a strong sense of self, and strong sense of place, and with this foundation, a realization that they are part of a greater whole. And—thank you for doing this all tirelessly, patiently, professionally, with wisdom, and a sense of humor. ~ Dr. Amy Evans, on behalf of the SAS Parents
