History - New Saint Andrews College

Church pews and song book




New Saint Andrews College was born in 1994, grew up in the Northwest, and now works to transform students from all over the world into builders of civilization.  Named after Andrew the Apostle and the profoundly influential Protestant city of Scotland that bears his name, New Saint Andrews carries on the long Reformation tradition of Protestant cultural leadership, innovation in education, and resistance to tyranny.

The college sits on Friendship Square, at the heart of rural Moscow, Idaho. New Saint Andrews is only a few blocks away from the University of Idaho and seven miles from Washington State University. Although a small town, Moscow sees an influx of over 10,000 college students during the school year and boasts a thriving community with great restaurants and coffee shops, as well as four vibrant seasons in a stunning landscape. The only Christian college in northern Idaho, New Saint Andrews is an educational stalwart among the surrounding universities.

Over the past twenty years, our liberal arts graduates have not only gone on to exclusive graduate programs, but they have also become business executives, writers, teachers, filmmakers, designers, pastors, entrepreneurs, and more.  New Saint Andrews College’s mission is to graduate leaders who shape culture through wise and victorious Christian living.

The college is accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and a member of the Association of Reformed Colleges and Universities.
