Founded over a century ago as a chorister school for the then-unbuilt Cathedral, St. Albans offers a distinctive educational experience for young men that encourages them to develop and use their spiritual, intellectual, artistic, and physical gifts not for themselves alone, but in service of the greater community.
While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school, we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
St. Albans students thrive on close relationships between faculty and students, on daily family-style lunches, on a challenging yet caring environment. They help each other and everyone in the immediate community. They value lives anchored by spiritual understanding and look to serve the communities beyond where they live. This focus on serving creates strong bonds. Most of our alumni—more than 4,000 strong—who live all over the world, doing every imaginable kind of work, keep in close touch with the School.
