"Middle School boys are fun. They are all over the place. There is never a boring day with them. They love to laugh, play, and learn, and we get to see them grow in myriad ways during these key years in their development. Some Middle School boys are physically tall and mature looking, while others still look more like young children. But the physical does not tell the whole story; it never does. When we talk about mind, body, and spirit and “educating the whole boy” at St. Christopher’s, this is one of the things we mean. We know that a smaller, less mature-looking Middle School boy may be ahead of his much larger peers, be it academically, artistically, socially emotionally, etc. So one of the great gifts of teaching Middle School is the opportunity to try and reach each boy where he is, across the wide range of development we see.”
-- Phil Spears, Middle School Head
Welcome to the Middle School
The Middle School years are among the most intense time for human growth and development, (comparable to birth through age three). It’s a challenging, critical period when students establish independence, connect with peers through common interests, and explore and build on their strengths.

St. Christopher’s Middle School is designed to reach out to boys across a wide range of development, and to motivate them with humor, and through a variety of activities such as competitions, special events and field trips.
Other Middle School highlights:
  • Daily morning chapel
  • Partnership with Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School in Richmond’s East End
  • Great Saints awards for boys who demonstrate outstanding work and citizenship
  • Citizenship Certificates for boys who are unknowingly caught by a teacher committing an unsolicited, selfless act
  • Lego robotics team
  • Recycling team
  • Online news magazine, The Paper Boy
  • Theater productions
  • Grade level bonding trips
  • Music recitals and choral concerts
  • The Turkey Bowl, an annual fall competition of touch football
  • Activities Day, a trimester diversion from the regular school day
  • Polar Bears, a P.E. alternative
  • Field trips to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The Edgar Allan Poe Museum, Shockoe Canal Walk, Virginia Historical Society, Virginia Holocaust Museum and The Presquile National Wildlife Refuge
