Saint Andrew Catholic School
Academic Achievement Anchored in Faith
Welcome to the Saint Andrew Catholic School, a pre-K through 5th-grade Catholic elementary school serving approximately 160 students and located at Saint Andrew parish in Elk River, Minnesota.
At Saint Andrew, we are building the Kingdom of God, child by child, through the living witness of our faculty, staff and parents. We combine a small and caring community, a deep love of our faith, and the academic rigor and cutting-edge technology to prepare students for the future and for eternity. We bring Jesus into the classroom every day and share our Catholic faith at our weekly school Mass, so that every child knows the love and support of God Himself.
Our award-winning teachers and staff welcome our parents and grandparents as volunteers, visitors and fully engaged partners in educating our students. We believe that students thrive with personalized attention in classrooms that foster faith, respect, pride and encouragement of one another, and our success shines forth in our students and families!
