Orah

(formerly Boardingware)

Getting Started
Additional Help  

St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School uses Orah, a management tool for communication among parents/guardians, boarders, upper school day students, and SAs staff. Based around a web-based and iOS app, Orah allows us to keep track of the status of each student whether “in house”, around the campus, or off-site. Up-to-date details of a student’s whereabouts can be put into the app by SAS faculty members to provide information directly to the residential staff on duty.

Boarders and day students will also use to app to request weekend leave and sign up for weekend activities and trips.

Using Orah, parents/guardians can:

  • Request leave for your child,
  • Provide permission for some off-campus trips, and/or
  • Be aware of your child’s off-site or weekend activities.

For more information on how SAS uses the system, contact Dean of Students Geoffrey Smith.  For technical help, use Orah’s Help Center
