Philosophy:

We recognize that the imperishable crown offered by Jesus Christ far exceeds any of the perishable crowns or trophies offered by this world.  As a Catholic school, St. Andrew upholds Christian values and principles.  Though our athletic teams strive to win in the sense of having the best score, we recognize the real value of Catholic school athletics is realized only if it fosters the development of the human person - both in spirit and body - by cultivating Christian character, strengthening personal integrity and resposibility, and promoting the pursuit of excellence in all endeavors.  Participation on a team is a privilege.  With this privilege come responsibilities in the areas of preparation, attitude, sportsmanship, and academics.  These responsibilities exist in and out of school and in athletic and non-athletic settings.

 

Conference Affiliation:

St. Andrew School participates in the Grand Strand Middle School League (GSMSL) a conference comprised of area Christian and Private Schools.  In addition to playing conference games, St. Andrew teams often play other schools in or around the Myrtle Beach area.  Thus, St. Andrew athletes play students from diverse backgrounds and skill levels.
