Welcome Message

Thank you for your interest in St. Stephen’s Episcopal Day School. One of the most important decisions a family can make is selecting an independent school whose mission and offerings best fit the needs of your child and your family. We are delighted that you have decided to learn more about our wonderful school.

Our focus at St. Stephen’s is to develop each child’s natural curiosity into a lifelong ability to think critically, creatively, and to love the experience of learning. We provide students with the academic, ethical and spiritual foundation to succeed in a diverse and changing world.

We hope that you enjoy exploring our website and encourage you to look at the virtual tour. Joining us for a virtual Open House in the fall would be the ideal opportunity to get answers to all your questions.

We look forward to meeting you and getting to know your family. Please know that we are here to help make the admission process as simple as possible.

St. Stephen’s Episcopal Day School is a joyful place full of traditions that unite our families and challenge our students over a broad range of academics and lively activities. We welcome all people and encourage them to join a life of learning, service, and compassion.

St. Stephen’s is a principal outreach of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. There are small class sizes at all grade levels. There are two sections per grade level through Grade 5. We welcome students of any race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin. Preference is given to siblings of current students and parishioner families. 

A parishioner family is one that, for at least one year before applying to St. Stephen's, has:

  • been regular in attendance at worship at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, as determined by the Rector
  • been active, pledging members of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church and have made a financial pledge for the upcoming year
  • been actively involved in at least one volunteer ministry or program of the Church

At St. Stephen's Episcopal Day School we actively seek students and families from varied racial, ethnic, cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. We are a diverse community and value each other's beliefs through an understanding of our commonalities and differences. Our commitment to the Episcopal tradition has generated a school culture that honors tradition, excellence, and the individual gifts of each of its students.
