It is with great pride and pleasure that we introduce Momentum 2025 — the new strategic plan for St. Christopher's School.

Now is the time to look to the future with creativity, optimism and Momentum 2025 as our guide.

   

In 1911, Dr. Chamberlayne founded a small school for boys that focused on three essential priorities:

List of 3 items.

  • -1-

    Honor and integrity
    above all, emphasized by our student-run Honor System.
  • -2-

    Rigorous academics,
    with an emphasis on the liberal arts and a focus on critical thinking.
  • -3-

    Service to others,
    exemplified by our Missionary Society, of which every student is a member.

We affirm these core founding principles, yet we know that in 2021 and beyond we must do even more. To that end, we have embraced four Strategic Priorities with equal importance:

1. Improving the Student Experience: Educating Boys for Life
2. Empowering Our People: Investing in Our Faculty and Staff
3. Strengthening Our Community: Creating a More Diverse St. Christopher’s
4. Stewarding Our Resources: Ensuring Affordability and Sustainability

St. Christopher’s currently operates from a position of enviable strength. Enrollment is at optimum capacity. Our talented faculty and staff are committed to the School’s mission. And we have recently transformed the campus with the addition of the new Arts Center. However, we have never been a community to rest on our laurels, and now is the time for us to harness our forward momentum to forge an even brighter future. We are grateful to the Board of Governors and the Task Force members for their contribution and dedication to Momentum 2025.
