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.
