Community and Inclusion

Building an Inclusive Community, What We Believe:

As a community, we are committed to a school that is diverse, inclusive and welcoming. We recognize this through admissions to curriculum to programming, as well as how we utilize our school resources.

Diversity & Inclusion Statement

St. Christopher's School is committed to the holistic development of each student in order to help every boy reach his full potential. The school fosters a diverse and inclusive school community in which every boy is known, loved and celebrated for his individual gifts and perspective.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is based on a genuine respect and appreciation for individual differences that enrich our school and reflect the broader community that we serve.

Further, our commitment to diversity and inclusion ensures that each student is prepared to engage and lead in an interconnected world with integrity, civility and respect. The foundational element of St. Christopher's is our community, strengthened by our diversity and our trust in one another, and thus, our fervent belief that all who come here are essential.

Chamberlayne Achievement Program

At St. Christopher's, we recognize that our students come from every walk of life, each with his own experiences and needs. Through our Chamberlayne Achievement Program, we seek to increase the enrollment and retention of students from underrepresented backgrounds who have demonstrated academic promise, leadership potential and unique talents or character traits that will enhance the learning environment at St. Christopher's.
