The Patten Family Foundation Exemplary Leadership Award

The Patten Family Foundation Exemplary Leadership Award was created to honor a member of the Saint Andrew's School faculty or a member of the school's staff or administration who, by example, has positively impacted the school through demonstrated stewardship of the school's mission. Recipients of this annual award receive an unrestricted gift of $10,000.

Candidates must be nominated by their division head and/or by the Head of School and will be selected by committee. The award recipient will receive an unrestricted financial stipend of $10,000 in recognition of the exemplary contribution he/she has made to the quality of our school community. The award will be held for a term of one year.

The Patten Family Foundation Grant for Sustaining Teaching Excellence

The Patten Family Foundation also established the first endowment fund to provide an annual award to a member of the teaching faculty in each division of St. Andrew's School - an award for a Lower School, a Middle School, and an Upper School teacher. The grant will recognize outstanding faculty who promote intellectual curiosity and active learning, model and foster academic rigor, and demonstrate effectiveness as teachers. Recipients of this grant will apply and be selected by committee and will receive an unrestricted financial stipend of $5,000 and an additional $5,000 stipend to be used to support a professional/scholarly activity that will enhance their teaching within their chosen discipline. The grant will be held for a term of one year.
