Dear St. Andrew’s Families,
On Friday, a report began to circulate online that Barron Trump will attend St. Andrew’s next year. With consent from the family, we write to confirm that Barron will be a member of the Class of 2024.
As a school we are clear about our mission and values, and about who we are as an inclusive Episcopal community. Our inclusive culture and values are at the heart of why our faculty and staff, alumni, and current families love and take pride in St. Andrew’s. As we came to know Barron through the admission process, it became clear that he, like all of our newly enrolled students, will be a great addition to St. Andrew’s.
Some parents have reached out to us with questions and comments about how day-to-day life at St. Andrew’s might be affected. We want to assure you that our community was at the center of our discernment process. School leaders are working directly with the Secret Service to ensure that Postoak Campus logistics and security will continue to work smoothly and discreetly next year for all of our students and families. We are committed to maintaining the positive feel, flow, and safety of our campuses.
As you process this news, you are welcome to reach out to either of us or to your child’s division head. If you happen to be contacted by any media organizations about Barron or St. Andrew’s, we ask that you direct those inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. This news is being communicated directly with students in grades 5-12 this morning.
As school leaders, we affirm this decision professionally and personally. We thank you for supporting your children and all of our children at St. Andrew’s so well.
Robert Kosasky, Head of School
Rodney Glasgow, Head of Middle School and Chief Diversity Officer
