Lives are changed forever after attending St. David’s School. Students discover who they are, and develop the courage to pursue life’s passions. They are advocates, problem solvers, relaters, leaders, entrepreneurs, and most importantly of all: dreamers who do.
A linguist with a love for others. Class of 2015
Carson Welch is pursuing his passion for language at Princeton University. He gives credit to his Latin instructors at St. David’s, who instilled in him a sense of curiosity about communication. He is currently majoring in English and has received school-wide recognition and an award for creative writing, all while also learning Russian. Still, he remains focused on people.
One summer, while others were interning on Wall Street, he was serving those standing in the shadow of the brutal, faceless 50-year military regime in Myanmar. Carson taught English to the poorest of the poor at the Joti Parla Monastery in Bagan. Last summer, he immersed himself in Russia to learn their language.
“At St. David’s, I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala, and immediately recognized how the mission trips Ms. Keegan (Upper School English Department Chair) led prepared me for the service I did in Myanmar.”
“St. David’s instilled in me the abilities required to reach my potential. The school not only demanded excellence from me, but also gave me the time, tools, and support to achieve it.”
Fighting the horrors of human trafficking
When she was a high school student at St. David’s, Elizabeth Stewart began assisting a group trying to stop sex trafficking of children in the U.S. She continued her work at the University of Virginia, taking a leadership position and serving as President for the campus organization of the International Justice Mission (IJM). After graduation, she joined the IJM field office in the Philippines, working to eliminate the Online Sexual Exploitation of Children. Recently, she accepted a position as a writer with the U.S. Department of the Interior. Elizabeth credits St. David’s for instilling the work ethic that makes such achievements possible.

“We gladly support St. David's because we have witnessed the academic and athletic opportunities it provides in a wholesome Christian atmosphere. What better investment can we make for our children, grandchildren and their future.” - Candy and Jeff Mullins, Current Grandparents Carly Rittenmeyer ’18, Lindsey Rittenmeyer ’20, and Jay Rittenmeyer ’24
"As the grandmother of three St. David’s School students, I have had an abundance of opportunities to see for myself the wonderful influence this school is having not only in my own family, but in the community at large. The positive Christian world view that is set forth impacts every facet of life -- mind, body and spirit. It’s exciting for me to see how these principles play out in my grandchildren’s lives. What I see are three highly motivated students who are excelling in their studies, participating in sports and other extracurricular activities and who display Christian ethics in their relationships with family and friends. As they grow up and launch out into society, just think of the powerful and positive impact they will have on our world! That is why I’ve chosen to give to the St. David’s Inspired Futures Capital Campaign." -Jacqueline Welsh, Current Grandparent
