St. Andrew’s is a private and faith-filled school with unique values.
Majority of presidents sent their children to private school, with only three presidential kids attending public school.
However, the First Couple’s decision for their son is eye-catching to many people since the choice is a publicly proud religious school and it is the first time in decades that a White House child is not attending Sidwell Friends.
Sidwell is where Obama’s children attended school while he was in office.
The philosophy of St. Andrew’s is to ‘provide a comprehensive coeducational college preparatory program for preschool through twelfth grade in an inclusive environment that embodies the faith and perspective of the Episcopal Church.’
The school also believes that ‘God represents the foundation of all truth and the source of all love’, but respects other religious practices and does not push their religious beliefs on students.
