Early years

Saint Andrew's School, named for the patron saint of Scotland, began as a boarding high school for boys, and was founded by the Episcopal School Foundation led by The Rev. Hunter Wyatt-Brown, Jr. who became the first headmaster. The late Alexander D. Henderson, a retired Avon Products, Inc. executive, and his wife, Lucy (Lucia Maria Ernst), provided significant private donations during the early years.

The first chapel services were held in a palmetto frond roof hut built by Seminole Indians. Today, the co-educational K-12 school has several buildings and resembles a small college campus. While the original "Chickee chapel" was replaced by a full size chapel, a new one has just been built, through the donations of an anonymous person, to honor Reverend George E. Andrews II.

The Alma Mater [ Saint Andrew's School website SAS Alma Mater and Prayer page] ]

"In the state of sunshine, land of lakes and pine,""Stands our Alma Mater, in her sacred shrine.""Louder still and louder will her fame ring clear.""With our shield to guide us, we shall have no fear.""Hail to thee, Saint Andrew's Alma Mater, dear." "We shall e'er remember, Alma Mater, dear.""We shall ever hail her with our voices clear.""Longer still and longer may she stand in pride.""May our Alma Mater ever be our guide.""Hail to thee, Saint Andrew's Alma Mater, dear."
