About St. Stephen’s

At St. Stephen’s, we provide a progressive, cohesive, and globally focused education for students 15 months – 8th grade. Grounded in Montessori principles, we encourage our students to become lifelong learners and influential global citizens.

Through academic success, critical thinking, spiritual growth, and creative expression, we are committed to providing an educational experience that isn’t one-size-fits-all. At St. Stephen’s, we promote understanding and respect while instilling a sense of responsibility for our interconnected world. Our focus is to aid students in becoming good learners and good people, providing a caring community that is true of moral and academic learning.

Education is about exploration, inspiration, and a willingness to look deeper at the world around us. At St. Stephen’s, this commitment to holistic education while upholding rigorous standards and providing a safe, respectful, and accepting environment for all students is what sets our school apart from the rest.

St. Stephen’s seeks to integrate religious and spiritual formation into the overall curriculum and life of our school community. Our school encourages our students to form a global perspective. We embrace differences and affirm the innate worth of all people.
