  • The Stony Brook School story began with a vision.

    In 1909 the Stony Brook Assembly, a retreat center with a series of annual summer Bible conferences, opened thanks to the vision of Rev. Dr. John F. Carson and his associates. The assembly was an immediate success, but Carson’s work was far from complete. He envisioned a school that would use the property throughout the year, educating students with a biblically centered curriculum and placing Christ at the core of learning. Thirteen years later, in mid September of 1922, The Stony Brook School for Boys officially opened. New headmaster Frank E. Gaebelein delivered an address conveying the significance of Stony Brook as an experiment in Christian education. His vision for the School was not merely an emphasis on strong academics for the education of the mind, but more importantly was an emphasis on character-building for the education of the heart. “Education without character is a dangerous thing,” Gaebelein said in his address in 1922. “For character, not intellectual agility, is the source of right living. But character itself has a source.”  

    99 years later, we are still seeking to bring that vision to life.
