A Higher Education for All of Life


New Saint Andrews College is a close-knit community of leading Christian scholar-teachers and students from diverse Christian backgrounds studying the integration of all knowledge under the lordship of Jesus Christ. Through its time-tested, rigorous approach to higher education and life in its small but lively college town environment, New Saint Andrews students gain a classical Christian liberal arts education and practice in engaging, shaping and creating culture.

It’s a college education for all of life, with alumni creating and producing in the fields of their various callings, and sowing seeds of faithfulness for generations to come in their homes, neighborhoods, churches, schools, businesses and communities. Graduates have gone on to pursue careers in business, writing, law, economics, teaching, technology and the ministry, and advanced study at places like Oxford, Duke, Notre Dame and Vanderbilt.

The ISI Guide to All-American Colleges describes New Saint Andrews as “intellectually rigorous and firmly grounded in the Christian tradition.”  The College, which limits undergraduate enrollment to no more than 200, also offers graduate programs in “Theology & Letters” and “Classical Christian Studies.”


Students have come from thirty states and seven foreign countries, representing twenty different Christian denominations. Frequently cited for its exceptional value, the College’s full-time, pre-paid tuition is less than half of the average private college or university.


New Saint Andrews is located in historic downtown Moscow, a town of 25,000 in the picturesque Palouse hills of northern Idaho. Moscow is also home to the University of Idaho, and Washington State University is across the border in nearby Pullman.
