Congratulations to Mrs. Brahan!



Congratulations to Mrs. Rachel Brahan, formerly Ms. Eagle, on her wedding to Bryan Brahan last weekend! Mrs. Brahan ( pronounced "bran" ) serves as the Director of Admissions at StoneBridge. The Brahans and Rachel's daughter, Lilly (1st grade), reside in Chesapeake and attend Community Church.
Meet Kim Frost,
Board of Directors
Kim Frost was born in Oklahoma and lived in a variety of Army posts across the country before graduating from high school in northern Virginia. Kim attended James Madison University for her undergraduate and graduate degrees. She worked as a computer programmer before becoming a realtor, which better suits her strengths and personality. 

Kim and her husband, Ryan, have three children - Hope (10th grade), Tate (7th grade) and Eve (5th grade).  The Frost family has been part of the StoneBridge School community for 12 years and Kim has served on the Board of Directors since 2010. During her time as a Board member, she feels privileged to witness God’s hand grow our enrollment and the physical expansion of our campus. As she continues to serve, she hopes to see the continuation of a rigorous curriculum that teaches Biblical foundations and principles in every subject. She added, “My vision includes a strong athletic program to provide opportunities to develop Godly character through sport. God can teach and we can learn Biblical truths through athletics.”  Kim would also like to see a campus that will support families and students for years to come so that they, too, can learn and witness what it means to be a nation changer for Christ. 

Her favorite scripture is her family’s verse, Colossians 3:17: And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it ALL in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Riverfront Golf Club
Each year parents and donors come out for our Golf Classic to build community and raise funds for our athletics program. Last year, the Golf Classic raised over $35,000! The great support from parents and area golfers helped us offer another year of character-building athletics to over 200 athletes.

This fundraiser provides the funding needed to accomplish some of the following goals:
  • Provide equipment and coaching for beginner golfers to join our team!
  • Purchase new uniforms for boys and girls.
  • Provide scholarships for training camps in soccer, volleyball and basketball for ages 4-18.
  • Purchase equipment to establish a baseball program for grades 5-12.
