The school's Health Clinic is staffed by two registered nurses. Our health staff is focused on preventative care, including annual flu vaccine administration, but is available to distribute prescription medications when needed and to care for students who are not feeling well. When necessary, students will be referred to a local doctor and transportation can be arranged. The closest hospital is less than a five-minute drive from campus and maintains a 24-hour emergency room and emergency air lift to Chattanooga and Nashville hospitals.
Safety & Security
St. Andrew's-Sewanee School is fortunate to be located in a rural and rather bucolic setting. The Sewanee police blotter rarely includes much beyond a loose dog or a stolen bicycle, but that doesn't mean we are complacent. Visitors to campus are required to sign in. A security detail checks all buildings at night. Students are required to check out when leaving campus either with the receptionist during the week or the teacher in charge on the weekends. On weekends, boarding students check in at lunch, dinner, and for floor reports at night.
As a school, we regularly conduct fire and lockdown drills. The campus siren is tested every Saturday at noon.
Sewanee maintains its own police, fire and emergency medical services, including a wilderness rescue team.
