Student Life

Boarding at STA

Providing students with a home away from home since 1909, St. Albans holds the distinction of being the only boarding school in the District of Columbia.
Today, the dorm houses thirty Upper School students (grades 9-12) who come from as far away as China, Northern Ireland, Palestine, the Republic of Georgia, Singapore, and South Korea. This small and dynamic mix of local, domestic, and international students adds to St. Albans’ unique community; regional and international perspectives increase the diversity of thought in our classrooms and halls. Boarders get the most out of St. Albans by living on campus, and they make St. Albans a richer, more complete school.

The dorm doesn't just allow students who live far from campus to have access to a St. Albans education. For local families overwhelmed by long commutes and busy Upper School schedules, the dorm blends day-school life with a traditional boarding experience—boys live away from home, but families are close enough to come to games, concerts, and other on-campus events.

Memories in the STA Dorm

Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
