History

One of the oldest Episcopal Schools in the South, St. Andrew's-Sewanee School traces it history to 1868 and the founding of the Sewanee Grammar School, a junior department of the newly founded University of the South. In 1981, the School consolidated the histories and traditions of the Sewanee Military Academy, St. Andrew's School, and St. Mary's School for Girls to create one strong and dynamic school and alumni body. Alumni of the school include several noted actors, authors, and musicians, including Pulitzer-Prize winner James Agee.

Considering Financial Aid?

Schools administer their financial aid individually. The keys to seeking financial aid are:

  1. Planning, including dedicating time to sit-down and work through the paperwork and process
  2. Communicating with the admission and financial aid officers at the school
  3. Completing the paperwork and forms early and accurately (forms and paperwork can differ between schools)
  4. Meeting the financial aid deadline (it's early).
