Dr. ChamberlayneIn 1911, Dr. Churchill Gibson Chamberlayne founded his school with only 16 students and began his work of educating not only the minds but also the bodies, spirits, and characters of young men. From the very beginning, his school emphasized honor and hard work in a curriculum and atmosphere that was both practical and idealistic.

From this noble foundation, St. Christopher's has become a thriving, vibrant institution, providing an education that is unsurpassed in this region. Dr. Chamberlayne’s vision has been realized in large part through the generosity of those the School has served.

The 1911 Society was established to recognize the generous individuals who have made
a provision for St. Christopher's in their estate plans through gifts of IRAs, bequests, life income
gifts or trusts.






Turner Bredrup '84, President, Foundation Board, on his father, Chris Bredrup"Dad loved playing and listening to music. He excelled at the piano and delighted in supporting orchestras and their players. The friendships and mentors he developed through playing and supporting music were integral to the full life he led. Dad also loved exposing others to great music and would have been thrilled to bring performers to St. Christopher’s for everyone to enjoy."
