Video: Early Saints Program

Our older son is flourishing in his primary years experience at SSSAS. His teachers foster a joy of learning that has increased our son's confidence and reinforced his curiosity. He has developed so many strong friendships and a sense of community.  We can't wait for our 3 year old son to experience the same excitement for school everyday in Early Saints.

Laying the Foundation

At St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School, Early Saints program for three-year-olds is an intimate and unique year in which the students are celebrated for all they bring with them. The Early Saints program, through enriching classroom experiences and exploration, outdoor play and creative movement, and social and gross motor skill development, will prepare young children for the early years of their academic journey. Our Early Saints will reap the benefits of being part of an independent school experience and our larger Saints community, and will participate in aspects of Lower School life including experiential learning on and off campus, foundational learning in science, visual arts, and performing arts, and physical education and movement.
