The Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) recently approved St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School for its periodic reaccreditation. The multi-year process began with a thorough report of how SAS meets hundreds of SAIS-required standards and indicators related to mission, leadership, academics, and communication. Simultaneous to this, administrators and faculty established teams to conduct a deep self-study of SAS's Goals for School Improvement, which build on the school's 2018-22 Strategic Plan. The accreditation process culminated with a site visit by a team of educators who observed classes and spoke with parents, faculty, alumni, and trustees.

FM 103.1, WMTN-LP, "The Mountain" provides an eclectic mix of programming in a non-commercial, public radio format to a 10-mile radius of campus. Approximately a dozen students take to the airwaves each semester with their own radio shows, productions, and music.
With several radio stations in Tennessee and three surrounding states, former SAS Board of Trustee Member and alumnus Bud Walters SMA '59 is a primary consultant to this year-around, campus initiative. Walters and his suppliers donated most of the station's equipment and have provided technical assistance for this venture, which had its first broadcast on April 24, 2004.
By helping to provide this opportunity at St. Andrew's-Sewanee, it is Walters' hope to spark students' interest in the broadcast field.
