Boys Schools: Beginning a New Conversation

Remarks from the Parent Dinner.

Headmaster Jason Robinson, in his address at the annual Parent Dinner, called for a new conversation about the promise and potential of boys schools in today’s world.
“As anyone who works with boys knows, there is a complex duality to their status in modern society. Even as they continue to benefit from structural and systemic advantages—and even as our society undergoes a long-overdue reckoning with male sexual misconduct—boys face a distinctive set of challenges that are often underappreciated by society and are therefore difficult to talk about in an open and emotionally honest way,” said Mr. Robinson.
“Boys schools,” he proposed, “are uniquely positioned to meet both the challenges and opportunities of the present age.” Click here to read Mr. Robinson’s complete address.
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.
