Headmaster's Study

A Homily by Mr. Robinson

Enjoy this week's chapel talk.

Headmaster Jason Robinson offered the homily at Upper School chapel this week. “At St. Albans, our job is not to tell you what to think, but to encourage you to think. Not to provide easy answers, but to invite you into a life of continual questioning—of the world and of your own assumptions. But to do all of this within a framework of values that bind us together as a school community," Robinson told the students. "To cultivate humility, rather than servitude. To teach you how to negotiate difference and disagreement—which are inevitable in any complex democracy—with character, with integrity, while always honoring the humanity in others. To help you become young men of discernment. And to help you make sense of the world and your lives when the ground beneath you feels like it is shifting in confusing and disorienting ways.” Enjoy watching this video excerpt and reading the entire homily.

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.
