My oldest son graduated from St. Christophers in 2016 and my youngest is currently a senior. Besides the amazing academics and sports opportunities available to the boys, what I love most is the connections they have made with their teachers. Both of my boys found teachers that just "get" them as individuals and have formed these incredible bonds with my sons. My boys are very different, so their connections have been different, but equally meaningful. During my oldest sons freshman year in college, we had 2 close family members die a month apart. It was a very difficult time for my son and I had a casual conversation about it with one of his former teachers. I had no idea at the time, but that teacher drove to his college just to have lunch with my son and to give him that extra support he needed. That, to me, embodies so much of what St. Christopher's truly is.

We chose St. Christopher's for the challenging academics that prepare the students for college. The faculty are well qualified and genuinely care about the boys. The philosophy and values that are taught at St. Christopher's reinforce those we teach our son at home. Coming into St. Christopher's as a freshman, our son has been welcomed by his peers. And, as parents, we feel welcomed by both faculty and other parents. There is a diversity of activities and opportunities available that satisfy many different interests and the boys are encouraged to try new things. St Christopher's is the perfect choice for our son.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
