Why STA?

Reflections on Life at STA
At our fall Admissions Open House, student and faculty panels answered questions about their St. Albans experience - from favorite moments, preferred lunches, and the secret to success (meet with your teachers!) at STA.

In the Upper School, RJ Johnsen – assistant director of admissions and of the Skip Grant Program and head baseball coach – interviewed juniors and seniors Chase Williams ’22, Graham Webber ’23, Luke Bernasek ’23, Pasha Hakimi  ’23, and Eli Quarles ’23 in Trapier Theater. In the Lower School, Fred Chandler – head of Lower School – engaged in conversation with Foreign Language Department Chair Kelly Castellanos Evans, art teacher and alumnus Kevin Mullin ’97, Form C teacher Bharti Vural, and librarian Raegan Conlin in the Parrott Library.

Enjoy their insights into life at St. Albans.
