Longtime philanthropic supporter of St. Andrew’s School receives 2019 John R. Chandler Award

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

St. Andrew's School Savannah preK Wilmington Island independent private

 

The Colonial Foundation and Rob Demere were presented with the John R. Chandler Award at the 2019 CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) and NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) Annual Conference in Philadelphia. The award recognizes the long-term support of a corporation or foundation toward the advancement of independent schools.

St. Andrew’s School   in Savannah nominated the Colonial Foundation and Demere for their longstanding philanthropic support to the independent school on Wilmington Island. They have given lead gifts for every major capital campaign in the 40-year history of the school, provided funding for financial assistance to qualified students through Georgia’s special tax redirection program, and have been a champion for the school in the local community.

“Over the years, the Demere family has supported many independent schools for their ability to transform our city and create meaningful progress,” said Head of School Dr. Kelley Waldron (pictured above with Rob Demere). “They also do so humbly and altruistically because it is the right thing to do. In fact, it took some convincing to get them to accept this award in honor of the tremendous impact they have had and continue to make in Savannah through the support of independent education and St. Andrew’s School.”

The award is named in honor of John R. Chandler, former assistant headmaster at the Hotchkiss School, and one of CASE’s first independent school trustees. Past recipients include American Honda Company, William Randolph Hearst Foundation and Mobil Corporation.

St. Andrew’s School  is a private, independent International Baccalaureate World School in Savannah inspiring young people age 3 through grade 12. Find more information here.

Savannah schools: Applications now being accepted for Teach for the Future Fellowship

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Teach Future St. Andrew's School Savannah schools

To invest in our students and those who teach them is to invest in our future. Applications are now being accepted for  Teach the Future Fellowship in Savannah , a yearlong fellowship for educators dedicated to transforming their schools and classrooms to prepare all students for the world as it is and will be, not as it was.

How can schools and classrooms be restructured to empower students to apply knowledge in new and unique ways? How do schools foster inquisitiveness and creativity? How can the power of technology as a creative tool be employed to enhance and expand students’ ability to connect and create in positive and valuable ways?

These questions are explored by educators in Teach the Future Fellowship in Savannah. Fellows identify a challenge in their classroom or school that they want to explore and for which they want to develop a unique solution. Through a series of programs during the fellowship, educators connect with and explore entrepreneurial approaches and frameworks, and relevant technological tools, that can be used in the development of the solution. Fellows have an opportunity to connect with other educators to help inspire, inform, and develop transformative solutions and approaches to teaching.

The fellowship is open to teachers and educational leaders from public and private institutions in the Savannah area. Fellows will have an opportunity to develop a broader network and connect with local resources in the technological and entrepreneurial space.

Application Deadline

Interested applicants should apply by Sept. 11 2018 online at teachthefuture.co. Annual tuition that covers costs for the entire year is $350.00. More information regarding program topics and dates can also be found online at teachthefuture.co.

Teach the Future is sponsored by St. Andrew’s School in Savannah.
