Wesley Heights | Foxhall
Friday 11 am - 4 pm
Saturday 10 am - 4 pm

Welcome to Christmas House Tour 2015 which will celebrate “Peace on Earth.” The STA community will come together for our Dinner-Dance Auction, the Soiree at STA, on Saturday, November 21, from 7:00– 11:00 pm. Our band, Raggs & The All Stars, will provide music; Occasions will provide a fantastic buffet dinner; and our own STA parent, Sandra Panetta, will once again provide cupcakes courtesy of Sweetbites. You will have a chance to bid on many wonderful items in the silent auction, including extraordinary vacations and getaways, fabulous sign-up parties, tickets to local events, and exceptional wines and spirits. We will also have a wine tasting. It is a fun and fabulous evening for the entire STA community that you don’t want to miss! Our online auction of fabulous items will be held November 12–15, 2015.
Then on Friday, December 4 and Saturday, December 5, five distinct homes, including the German Ambassador’s residence, in the Wesley Heights/Foxhall neighborhood will be on display and decorated by some of the finest florists in Washington. Bus transportation will be provided from St. Albans School to the neighborhood where the beautifully adorned homes will be opened to the community and filled with the holiday spirit. Back at school, more than 50 vendors will transform the third floor of Marriott Hall (entering off Senior Circle) and the Cafritz Refectory into a holiday marketplace, open both days from 9:30 am– 5:00 pm. Before or after you tour the houses, enjoy a seated holiday luncheon from 11:00 am– 2:30 pm in the Cafritz Refectory. Tickets are required for the house tour and luncheon, but not for the holiday boutiques. In addition, we encourage families to become patron sponsors by clicking the link below. 
We look forward to seeing you at these annual events that are the Parents’ Association’s largest fundraisers for grants awarded to our esteemed faculty, staff, and coaches. Thank you for your support!

Thank You!

Past House Tours have enabled the Parents’ Association to support the faculty and staff in a variety of ways, including grants for classroom needs and continuing education. Thank you for helping us continue this important tradition.
Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. 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.
