The St. Andre's Parish complex possesses integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling and association and is locally significant under National Register Criteria A and C. The period of significance for the parish runs from 1900, the date of earliest construction, to 1965, the National Park Service 50-year cut-off date for National Register listing. Under Criterion A , St. Andre's parish is significant in the areas of Ethnic Heritage for its association with the French-Canadian community in Biddeford. The complex is significant under Criterion C in the area of Architecture as a collection of well-designed early 20th century buildings that collectively form a noteworthy example of a Roman Catholic parish complex. The church is also important as a local example of the work of Boston architects Chickering & O'Connell, representing an important component of the firm's work. St. Andre's Parish includes three contributing historic buildings (a church, rectory and convent) and two noncontributing buildings (an altered school and an added garage).
