St. Albans School

St. Albans School

For more than one hundred years, St. Albans School has educated boys well. Here, boys learn to solve differential equations, construct castles and catapults, parse Chinese poetry and Latin history, reenact a scene from Shakespeare, and reargue a historic debate. They race underwater robots in the swimming pool and send lab experiments into outer space. They learn how to think and read critically and to write clearly.

Many boys come to St. Albans School because of the school’s rigorous college-preparatory program. They graduate, I hope, with something more. The long view, for our boys, involves the pursuit of wisdom and of a demanding and satisfying life, preferably dedicated to the service of others.

As an Episcopal school standing beside Washington National Cathedral, St. Albans places great emphasis upon boys’ moral and spiritual education. Our community welcomes faculty and students from all faiths and backgrounds. We encourage boys to find their strengths in many spheres: sports and arts are not extracurricular activities here; they are essential elements of our course of study.

St. Albans students thrive thanks to close relationships with their teachers and fellow students, cultivated in chapel, on the sidelines, in small seminars, and during daily family-style lunches. The school’s welcoming and caring environment helps boys discover the strength they need to achieve their goals, to pursue their talents, and, ultimately, to find wisdom and joy in life.

Landon is a place where we encourage the boys to strive, to reach, to endeavor towards becoming their best selves. It is a place with a highly challenging and dynamic academic program that prepares the boys for the finest colleges and universities in the country. And it is a place with a robust co-curricular program that helps the boys to live fully into their potential and become accomplished in myriad ways, from the arts to athletics to service to leadership.  Indeed, it is not uncommon to see a Landon boy running across campus from an English class to a football practice toting a cello on his back.  This is how Landon boys live.  For here we seek not just excellence, but balanced excellence.

St. Anselm’s Abbey School

At St. Anselm’s Abbey School, a Roman Catholic, independent school for talented, motivated, and inquisitive young men in grades 6-12, each student is a valued and integral part of a joyful and inspiring campus, an enclave where he can find pitch-perfect harmony in serving others while walking, with utter confidence, alongside the beam of light God intends for him to discover, explore, and, ultimately, pursue. An ever-inclusive community in the spirit of Saint Benedict, we welcome and respect students of all faiths, races,nationalities, and circumstances.

Centered in equal and complementary parts around a rigorous classical education (truly unparalleled city-wide) and the rich heritage of the 1,500-year-old Benedictine educational tradition, St. Anselm’s has been shepherding and shaping academically gifted boys who are eager to work to their capacity for over 70 years now. Coming of age as a member of the St. Anselm’s student body means that each boy will be exposed to a superior academic program that encourages balance in mind, body, and spirit.

While the School’s track record of strong AP participation and results, high levels of National Merit recognition, and impressive college matriculation lists are all elements of the St. Anselm’s experience that we are rightly proud of, and in part known for, it is on the intangible or “unmeasureable” side of the ledger where our students shine all the more brilliantly. Every St. Anselm’s graduate, to a man, is thoughtful, kind, reflective, fun-loving, inventive, team-centered, humorous, generous, determined, and independent.
