Saint Andrew Catholic School

 Welcome to Saint Andrew Catholic School!

We are a Catholic elementary school for age 4 through grade  located at Saint Andrew parish in Elk River, Minnesota.  Saint Andrew Catholic School has added sixth grade for the 2023-2024 school year. We are still taking registrations!  In fall 2024, a seventh grade will be added. Eighth grade will be added in 2025 to complete the middle school addition.

We are excited to announce that Believe and Read is coming to Saint Andrew Catholic School!  It is a reading program based on the science of reading.  Our K-3 teachers will receive professional development and teacher coaching to use the most effective techniques to ensure all students read at or above grade level by the end of grade three.  This program is generously funded by the Catholic Schools Center for Excellence (CSCOE) in partnership with Groves Learning Organization, a national leader in literacy instruction.

We are building the Kingdom of God, child by child, through the living witness of our faculty, staff and families.

We nurture students toward a lived discipleship:
Daily prayer and weekly Mass
Catholic teaching embedded in curriculum
Dedicated time to teach prayers, traditions, and devotions of the Catholic faith


We challenge students to develop the knowledge, skills, and work habits needed to excel:
Strategic emphasis on STEM education
Limited class sizes and documented high academic achievement
Curriculum including music, band, physical education, and media preschool programs




 We create a learning environment that fosters respect, self-discipline, and kindness:
 Lifelong values-based relationships among students and families with a strong emphasis on social justice and service
