St. Albans School Reviews

Honestly, this may be the single greatest secondary academic institution in the world. I transferred here from Exeter my sophomore year, and it was the best decision that I have ever made. The culture, the students, and the academics are absurdly strong. My senior year I took a class in abstract algebra, read Ulysses, and did an independent study in statistical thermodynamics. Where else could I do that? If you are accepted here, attend. I was a Harvard physics major and I consider my most formative academic years to be the ones I spent at St. Albans. I cannot say enough so I will stop here, but this is a really special place.

St. Albans is a stellar school that works hard to make well rounded young men. Students are required to partake in three seasons of sports every year, attend chapel twice a week, eat family style lunch every day in the refectory, and take many challenging core classes in each grade. Because of this, the community is very close and the student life is next to none. The school is in fact challenging, but I have been told by many alums that St. Albans did a spectacular job preparing them for college and beyond. It would be hard to find a group of students that have as much school pride as St. Albans students do, as displayed in our athletic prep rallies. St. Albans honestly feels like a second home.
In retrospect, St. Albans (STA) was the best school for me to attend in the formative time in my life. The teachers at STA are fully committed to making intelligent, well-rounded, empathetic men. Further, the community is completely supportive of all. While, at times, the school can come off as a traditional "boys' club" (it almost literally is), there is credence in the praise the school receives as an academic institution.
