Did you know that St. Stephen’s spends more than $1,500 per student above and beyond tuition on enhancements and upgrades every year? These enhancements touch every student and every classroom and take our school from good to great.

We fund these difference makers with charitable contributions to the Annual Fund, foundation grants, and other support.

    What Initiatives does the Annual Fund support?

    • Campus Beautification: Making improvements and upgrades, such as adding new outdoor learning materials, installing shading structures on the main playground and ensuring child-friendly safety measures to our campus.
    • Professional Development: Providing certification and continuing education opportunities for our dedicated faculty and staff so that they can do more to enhance our students’ journey at St. Stephen’s.
    • Program Development: Enhancing classroom projects and activities including fine arts and STEM to ensure every child from Orientation to 8th grade can be better positioned for lifelong learning.
    • Technology and Equipment: Ensuring that our students, faculty, and staff have state-of-the-art equipment including educational software, laptops, and adding upgrades to our Information Technology infrastructure.
    • Where Most Needed: Emergencies happen. Having resources available to address these unexpected incidents when they occur allows us to continue to focus on our mission rather than how we will meet these demands. The Annual Fund provides unrestricted operating dollars to the school. When you give dollars where most needed, it allows us to place funds in areas that need the most attention.
