RICHMOND, Va. — After 18 years, the head of one of Richmond’s largest private schools is stepping down and heading north. St. Christopher’s School Headmaster Charley Stillwell on Thursday announced his decision to leave the school next year after accepting a similar position with Episcopal High School, a 435-student coed boarding school in Alexandria, Virginia.

Stillwell started at St. Christopher’s in the summer of 1998 and will remain throughout the 2015-16 year before starting his new position July 1, 2016.

“I love St. Christopher’s, and it was a very difficult decision,” Stillwell said. “I took over at a very young age – I was 35 – so the question was whether I would try to stay and lead the school for the next 10, 15 years, or whether I had time for one more significant professional challenge as a final chapter in my career.”
