SCRIPT 1 – Boys School Partners with St. Catherine’s
Since its first session in 1911, St. Christopher’s School has been dedicated to educating and developing the whole boy. This single sex environment allows the School to focus on the specific needs of boys. The boys also benefit from the School’s partnership with its sister school, St. Catherine’s.
SCRIPT II – 1913 Financial Woes
After only two years, the Chamberlayne School was having financial trouble. Daily operating expenses quickly exceeded income. Still a new bride, Mrs. Chamberlayne grappled with the amount of energy required to educate and shelter boys. Doctor Chamberlayne was torn between continuing his dream of a country day school in Richmond and accepting a new position in another school.
SCRIPT III – The Episcopal Diocese Purchase
Word spread quickly that the Doctor had accepted the position at Sweet Briar. In order to save the fledgling school and to keep him in Richmond, parents assumed the loans personally, just as the Chamberlaynes had done. Further financial support came when the Episcopal Diocese formed the Church Schools of the Diocese of Virginia Corporation. They saw promise in the Chamberlayne School and in 1920, St. Christopher’s School was born.
SCRIPT IV – The Literary Society
One of Dr. Chamberlayne’s early initiatives was for the boys to learn to stand on their own two feet, and to communicate with confidence in public. He established the Literary Society and named its competing teams after two of Virginia’s gifted leaders, Lee and Jackson. The Literary Society has evolved over the century and remains active today as the Chamberlayne Reds and Grays.
SCRIPT V – The Missionary Society
Dr. Chamberlayne also established the Missionary Society to offer an intentional approach to serving the broader community. Today the Missionary Society plays a critical role in inspiring the boys to make a difference in the world around them.
The boys left for spring vacation in April of 1939 and returned to the news that their beloved Headmaster had died. He had succumbed after a long respiratory illness.
Dr. Chamberlayne’s absence left an emptiness on campus. And yet, the presence of his spirit filled the corridors. Today, his commitment to developing the whole boy - in mind, body and spirit - remains.
