Chapel Talks

- St. Albans School Philosophy

"St. Albans helps boys develop their spiritual gifts in service of the greater community... and believes that the spiritual growth of its students gives meaning to their intellectual and physical endeavors."
Once or twice a week, Upper School students participate in a chapel service held in the Little Sanctuary. There, school chaplains, teachers, alumni, and students address the community about the spiritual challenges and opportunities encountered every day.

We include a sample of chapel talks compiled throughout the school year.

  • The Result of Our Experiences

    By Sam Akhavan ’16
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.
