School History

“Catholic education is above all a question of communicating Christ, of helping to form Christ in the lives of others…”

Saint Andrew Catholic School opened its doors in August 2008 with grades Pre-Kindergarten through five and a student body of 110. As students were promoted, the school grew to include grades PK3 through eight. The school is a parochial school, a ministry of Saint Andrew Catholic Parish. The beautiful modern building was the generous gift to the diocese by the ALSAM Foundation. The ground breaking ceremony was held on September 1, 2007 with The Most Reverend Bishop John C. Wester blessing the ground. Reverend Francisco Pires, founding Pastor of Saint Andrew Catholic Parish presided with local civic and diocesan representatives present to turn the soil. Children of the vicinity will benefit from this donation for many years to come.

Sister Karla McKinnie, CSC was appointed in August of 2007 to prepare and open the school, as the founding principal. The Most Reverend Bishop John C. Wester and the parish/school community proudly dedicated the building on September 13, 2008.

Currently Father Marco Lopez presides over the parish and school. Our principal, Erin Carrabba, started at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. We look forward to the many years to come at Saint Andrew Catholic School.
