SAS classes are as unique as our students’ interests. With place-based and outdoor learning at the heart of our innovative academic programming, students study hands-on in our campus wetlands and forests, lakes, active archeological sites, and our organic farm.
Our long history with the University of the South offers an authentic university experience to qualified students who wish to explore diverse academic interests and earn transferable college credit.
Students graduate confident in their ability to seek and accept challenges, academic or otherwise, having developed a lifelong love of learning.
We are dedicated to cultivating passionate, thoughtful, and well-rounded human beings. Self-expression is encouraged through our arts program. Performing and visual artists benefit from the vast resources, including a clay studio, recording studio, theater and musical shows, gallery exhibits, and a student-run radio station.
With an emphasis on effort, discipline, teamwork, and integrity, students may participate in 25 teams across 10 sports, in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, mountain biking, swimming, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling. Through our athletics, we encourage community participation, team spirit, competition, and school pride.
Our Episcopal heritage is the basis of our commitment to openness, trust, forgiveness, and respect. Our diverse student body represents cultures and religions from around the world, which broaden global perspectives.
We prioritize joy, so much so that our academic schedule is designed around it! We set aside time to try new things and explore new topics.
Co-curricular PEAK activities provide ample time for students to engage their curiosity and passion, from rock-climbing and adventure cycling to dark room photography and textile design.
At St. Andrew’s Sewanee School, you are encouraged and empowered to become your fullest self… welcomed, loved, and supported just as you are.
