Saint Andrew Catholic School

Welcome to Saint Andrew Catholic School!

We are a thriving Catholic school in Elk River that is expanding! We currently serve Pre-Kindergarten through grade 6. In fall 2024, seventh grade will be added. Eighth grade will be added in 2025 to complete the middle school addition. We have partnered with a nearby Catholic High School for those wishing to extend their Catholic education through grade 12 and beyond.

We are building the Kingdom of God, child by child, through the living witness of our faculty, staff and families. We have offered academic achievement, anchored in faith, since 1951. Our three pillars are faith, academics, and community.


We nurture students toward a lived discipleship:
Daily prayer and weekly Mass
Daily religion lessons to teach the truths of our Catholic faith, our prayers, and traditions
Service opportunities that reflect the Catholic Social Teachings


We challenge students to develop the knowledge, skills, and work habits needed to excel through:
Experienced, passionate staff members that strive to help each child identify and use their gifts
Rigorous curriculum materials that are up to date and reflect strong pedagogical practices
A wide variety of subjects including reading, math, social studies, science, health, physical education, technology,
    music as well as band and choir for the upper grades



We create a learning environment that fosters respect, self-discipline, kindness and relationships through:
Purposeful cultivation by staff of lifelong relationships between staff, students and families
School wide focus on virtues
A Family Engagement Committee to connect families through fun events as well as a Faith Engagement
    Committee to help all school families grow in faith
