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.
