Student Life

Travel

While we are a small, close-knit community, there is plenty for boys to explore here at home and abroad.
St. Albans School offers many domestic and international opportunities for boys to explore the world outside of the Cathedral Close and the D.C. metropolitan area.

Whether hiking in the Alps, tasting real ramen in a noodle shop in Tokyo, studying l’histoire de la démocratie in a French lycée, watching the World Cup in a Mexican café, teaching youngsters in a school in India, helping produce authentic Iberian ham in a tiny Andalusian village, or excavating a Roman archaeological site, St. Albans students are gaining a better understanding of themselves and the role they play in our world.

Student travelers learn how to live and work with people from diverse backgrounds, and they forge life-long friendships with families around the country and the world. Almost half of our students go overseas on a school-sponsored trip during their time in the Upper School. The school encourages and supports student travel through well-established exchanges with schools overseas, cultural tours, semesters abroad, and through a rich assortment of domestic and international fellowships that give students the freedom to travel anywhere in pursuit of a project that inspires them. Limited financial aid is available for the exchange programs.

If you’re interested in learning more about international student travel and exchange programs, please contact Mme. Mireille Beuchard.
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.
