Religious Studies

St. Alban’s Episcopal Day School is serious in its religious instruction. Formal religion classes are offered at each grade level and the School emphasizes its Episcopal Identity through regular chapel services. Students (Toddlers through 6th grade) are given the opportunity to exercise servant leadership in our chapel services, which are patterned after the liturgies in the Book of Common Prayer.  Older students read the scriptures and offer the prayers and all students have the opportunity to serve as offertory helpers.  Each week, one class is charged with helping to lead chapel and present the weekly lesson.
