St. Andrew Apostle School encourages the development of Christ-like character. Character education is taught throughout the school and is founded in the God given dignity of every student, parent, member of the faculty, priest – indeed of every one person. The purpose is to teach the students responsibility for their own behavior through the adults who teach and serve them. The intent of St. Andrew Apostle is to foster and protect the spiritual, physical, social, mental and emotional growth of all students and to instill a desire to treat others as they wish to be treated. The goal of character education is the development of leadership and respect for self and others, particularly those of other cultures, races and abilities.
