Student Life


Ask a St. Albans boy how his day is, and he’ll probably say, with enthusiasm, “Busy!” St. Albans students participate in a spectacular range of extracurricular activities. Each year, students produce The Saint Albans News, Upper and Lower School yearbooks, a literary journal, and recordings of student music. Student Councils provide a direct link between the students and the faculty; vestry members help present chapel services and sponsor social-service activities.
Taking full advantage of our location in Washington, D.C., students often study at nearby university libraries or the Library of Congress and pursue summer internships at local institutions, including the National Institutes of Health.
St. Albans’ athletic teams have competed on area university fields as well as the home field of the Washington Nationals. Our Social Service Program engages agencies in Maryland, D.C., and Virginia; school clubs, including the Model U.N., Government Club, and Fed Challenge benefit greatly from access to government institutions, policymakers, and other civil servants.

Before graduating, almost half our students go overseas on a school-sponsored trip. St. Albans encourages and supports student travel through well-established school exchanges as well as a  rich assortment of fellowships that allow students to travel almost anywhere in the world in pursuit of a project that inspires them.

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.
