In 1911, the Reverend Dr. Churchill Gibson Chamberlayne founded the Chamberlayne School for Boys in the 3300 block of Grove Avenue. In 1914, the school moved to its present location, and in 1920 changed its name to St. Christopher’s School after its purchase by the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. Learn More >>>
Mission Statement: St. Christopher’s School knows, loves, and celebrates boys, promotes their pursuit of excellence, and prepares them for lives of honor and integrity, service, and leadership.
Profile: St. Christopher’s School, the largest all-boys school in Virginia and one of the largest and oldest boys’ schools in the Mid-Atlantic region. Serving nearly 1,000 boys in grades JK-12 in Richmond, Virginia, the School seeks to prepare a talented and diverse group of boys for college and for life in an ever-changing world. A rigorous academic program, small classes, dedicated and nurturing teachers who are experts in how boys learn, a vibrant program in athletics and the arts, and a commitment to leadership and personal responsibility are hallmarks of a St. Christopher’s education. Our Episcopal foundation is at the center of what we do, and we care most about developing young men who possess honor and integrity.
