SAS Expands Boarding to 8th Grade
Posted 06/06/2017 12:12PM

St. Andrew's-Sewanee School has responded to prospective family requests and will be welcoming fulltime 8th grade boarders in Fall 2017. The co-ed, Episcopal, college preparatory, day and boarding school in Sewanee, Tennessee, had announced earlier this year that they would admit 8th graders for 5-day boarding. The school will provide housing with additional adult supervision for students in grades 8 and 9.

"We have been pleased with the response to the introduction of 8th grade boarding," said Head of School Karl Sjolund. "Many families are seeking the small school environment, round-the-clock mentoring, and extracurricular opportunities that boarding school provides. St. Andrew's-Sewanee's emphasis on meeting the individual needs of each student, whether for great academic challenge or academic support, also make us an attractive option for families who want to give their child an early advantage."

St. Andrew's-Sewanee School welcomes students from across the United States and more than a dozen countries.

The school, which traces its history to 1868, is located on 550-acres on the Cumberland Plateau and makes extensive use of its campus for classes and recreational opportunities. SAS benefits from a strong relationship with the University of the South which allows qualified juniors and seniors to take college courses for free and for credit. It was recently named one of the Most Beautiful High Schools in the South by Southern Living magazine.
