We offer one block of ESL instruction and all other classes are taught in English with the exception of any language classes such as French and Spanish. All students will be assessed on their English skills in order to place them in the appropriate courses.

There are a number of qualified tutors available for students who need additional help. The International Coordinator can arrange tutor services for students in need.

In some cases students may be asked to take an English language proficiency exam in their home country during the application process.

Testimonials
This is how I explain what religion at this school teaches me. Sure I learn the history and analyze the Bible, but I also have been forming a set of morals and values that will go with me for the rest of my life. They are the foundation of who I am.
Breanna Student
I am very excited to be able to link my Olympic journey, full of trials and tribulations, back to a very important time and place in my life: St. Andrew's Regional High School.
Dave Calder Alumnus
I feel truly blessed to have had the privilege of attending St. Andrew’s Regional High School. St. Andrew’s has given me the opportunity to grow spiritually, academically, artistically, and athletically.
