We Graduate Men of Character

100% of St. Christopher’s graduates attend four-year colleges and universities, with the occasional student opting for a gap year before beginning college.

The College Counseling staff works individually with every boy to find the right college fit. We are proud that graduates in the past two classes are attending highly selective colleges and universities like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Duke, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, La Sorbonne, Davidson, Washington and Lee, UNC-Chapel Hill, William and Mary, and the University of Virginia, but we are proud of every student’s college choice. The names on a college list only hint at the journey of self-discovery and discernment undertaken by each student, and we are more interested in the journeys than the destinations.
