Simply put, I love Christchurch School. Christchurch was more than a school to me; it was an extension of my family and the teachers and experience as a student helped set my course to become the person I am today. Read More

Andy Clarke '71

In June of 2006, Andy Clarke returned to Christchurch School for Alumni Weekend for his 35th Class Reunion. This weekend visit to his alma mater was filled with reconnecting with his classmates and sharing wonderful memories of his incredible experiences both in and out of the classroom at Christchurch. Andy’s story is not unique; his return visit that Alumni Weekend was more than the rekindling of his boyhood friendships and revisiting his Christchurch experiences, it was a time of rediscovery of Christchurch, the Rappahannock River and the meaningful impact the school had on his life.

Mitch Lamm '95

I feel very fortunate to have graduated from Christchurch School. I owe a lot of gratitude to my family for making the financial and emotional decision to let me attend Christchurch. The school gave so much to me and helped me develop into the person that I am today. It was teachers like Mrs. Nolan and Doc Beauchamp who helped prepare me for the real world. The friendships I made with other students and their families created memories that I treasure everyday. Read More

Jeff Pennington '98

When I started my financial service business, Pennington Financial Group, it immediately came to mind to take out a life insurance policy declaring Christchurch School as a beneficiary. This decision was an easy one for me, since I can definitively say the experiences and work ethic I gained from Christchurch School have led me to where I am today - a successful small business owner. Many people may be able to tell you stories from my past, before Christchurch School, but the person I am today is because of the knowledge gained from my time on the shores of the Rappahannock River.

I usually made a yearly gift to the Christchurch School Annual Fund, but approaching my 50th Class Reunion in 1999, I decided I wanted to contribute something additional to the school. In planning our class reunion, Cliff Asbury and I developed the idea of creating a "Class of 1949 Gift" as a challenge to future 50th reunion classes. I wanted my gift to go toward establishing a fund to provide financial assistance to boarding students so they could afford to attend Christchurch School. Our goal was to provide a fund that would provide financial support for a student in need for years to come. Read More
