Shaping culture requires an idea of what culture should look like. At New Saint Andrews College, we follow the model provided to us by Christ and his Word. In glorifying Christ and serving our neighbor, and in creating leaders to shape culture, our college is unique in four major aspects.

Faith

Faith in Christ and his gospel are the foundation of New Saint Andrews College. All classes, events, and functions happen with Colossians 1:16-17 in mind: “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.”

Theology

Our theology follows in the God-honoring Reformed tradition. You can learn more about the college’s theological education here. Our Wenden House program, which translates untouched Reformation materials, is for those who love classical languages, literature, and theology.

Education

It’s clear that our culture needs more than intelligence—it also needs biblical wisdom. Guided by the light of Scripture, students converse with their professors and classmates through the classical western tradition to gain deep wisdom that can navigate all the challenges of life. They also gain an expansive and flexible set of mental skills enabling them to adapt and self-teach through professional careers.

Classes

Check out unscripted classes with students and professors. All courses are dialogue-driven, with professors serving as conversational guides through class material. Check out our undergraduate program here.

Disputatio

Outside speakers and ideas are brought to the entire student body every Friday.

Community

To shape culture, you need a culture to replace it with. As students engage the surrounding culture and the most challenging ideas in the western tradition, they commune with a body of saints within the college and Moscow—a culture known for its celebratory and staunch faith. All students confess the Apostolic Creed, attend local evangelical churches, and grow amongst a body of Christians who bow to Christ’s lordship and rejoice in his gospel.

Student Life

Students and alumni speak about their experiences and outcomes. Our student life page shows what clubs and activities are available.

Music

A key feature of our community is a love for music. The Conservatory of Music offers undergraduates the opportunity to get a Certificate of Music and alongside our B.A. in just four years.

Mission and Vision

The College’s mission is to graduate leaders who shape culture, living faithfully under the lordship of Jesus Christ. We think of this as the unfolding of the Great Commission of our Lord—it’s living out our theology through our fingers. As New Saint Andrews College hopes to help rebuild civilization using the City of God as a model, we refuse to simply be intellectuals but to bring the high intellectual pursuits down to concrete acts of service.

Schedule time with me

Originally from Austin, TX, Grace has been in Moscow since 2012 and graduated with her BA from New Saint Andrews in 2016. After that, she started working for the College in the recruitment department, where she’s been honing her email and phone call skills ever since. For her, Moscow is the best place to spend time with friends, especially at Nectar, her favorite spot in town. In her spare time, you may find her rock wall climbing, hiking, or out on the soccer field, but most likely, you’ll find her talking to interested students over the phone.

Raised in Sherman, TX, Jacob braved the midwest tundra to receive his BA at Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis, MN. He moved to Moscow in 2018 to pursue his MA at New Saint Andrews and pastoral training through Greyfriar’s Hall. He joined the team in 2019 and now spends his days calling students, writing and editing emails, and staring mysteriously out of the window like a sailor. His favorite Moscow spots include Tapped Taphouse and Kitchen, where he worked as a server, and Bucer’s Coffeehouse, where you can frequently find him “studying” amongst a swarm of New Saint Andrews students.
