St. Andrew's-Sewanee School

290 Quintard Rd, Sewanee, TN 37375

SAS resulted from a 1981 merger between the Sewanee Academy of the University of the South (established in 1868) and St. Andrew's School (established in 1905). The curriculum provides progressive liberal arts preparation for college. An extensive arts program features course work in music, theater, clay, studio art and film. SAS' Winterim program enables all pupils to take two short, weeklong classes in such areas as stop-motion photography. Qualified juniors and seniors may enroll in tuition-free courses for college credit at the University of the South, and all pupils engage in a year's study of art, drama or music, and religion. Students fulfill a 60-hour community service requirement prior to graduation; they also contribute an hour per week to campus labor. Various athletic and outdoor activities are available. The LEADS (Leadership, Environment, Adventure, Discovery and Service) program fosters leadership skill development through such outdoor activities as mountain biking, rock climbing and kayaking. SAS schedules field trips to sites of interest in Nashville and Chattanooga.
