BENEFITS OF ATTENDING
St. Stephen's Episcopal School is a nationally recognized boarding and day school providing exceptional academic opportunity for students in grades 8-12. We are a community dedicated to the educational, cultural, physical and spiritual growth of our students. Each year our graduates head to top colleges across the country. But ask our alumni what their time at St. Stephen’s prepared them for, and few of them will focus solely on their readiness to get into “a good school.” At St. Stephen’s students are prepared to live good lives, and to be good citizens of the world we all share.
Every day our students take part in rigorous and spirited academic instruction. The academic environment is challenging, engaging, participatory and supportive. Students learn the all-important critical thinking skills and to question and reason independently. Our distinguished faculty is diverse and accomplished in a wide range of fields, but it is united in its passion for nurturing the intellectual and cultural growth of all students.
At St. Stephen’s, what happens outside the classroom is just as important as what happens inside. From athletics, to travel abroad, to student clubs and organizations, our students engage in activities that are fun and connect them to the world. Opportunities in the fine arts allow students to pursue their creative talents in the visual arts, music, dance, theater and film. These include an advanced film program an intensive Theatre Focus program, a dance company, as well as choral and instrumental student ensembles.
Our students participate in team and individual sports at some of the finest facilities in the Southwest. St. Stephen’s fields teams in football, baseball, field hockey, track, basketball, tennis, golf, volleyball, cross-country, lacrosse, soccer and swimming. An outdoor wilderness program offers more ways for students to explore the local area, the United States and abroad. The Soccer Academy and Tennis Academy programs offer year-round training that allows many of their alumnae to continue their play on the collegiate level. Team, small group, individual, and strength and conditioning training are part of a comprehensive program that integrates a rigorous college-preparatory academic experience with the tournament and practice schedule that will help each student athlete achieve their potential.
The St. Stephen’s first-rate facilities include new dormitories, student center, dining hall, pedestrian walkways, school bookstore and academic classroom building. Classrooms and computer labs are outfitted with the latest technology and the fine arts studios, performance spaces, athletic courts and fields support students in all areas of their education.
Diversity, inclusiveness and acceptance are essential to the St. Stephen’s identity and experience. The campus is home to students from countries all over the world. An aggressive outreach program assists academically qualified but economically challenged students. St. Stephen’s offers young people an environment where everyone is accepted and included. We challenge motivated students to live intelligently, creatively, and humanely as contributing members of society.
Think beyond what others might expect or accept. Think about a life informed by the St. Stephen’s experience. We think you’ll be glad you did.
