Academic and Campus Programs

St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School is an academic institution that fosters in its students the ability to think critically and creatively, explore complex ideas, and communicate information and perspectives in a clear and compelling manner. And since its beginning, the school has embraced a mission to pursue goodness as well as knowledge. This philosophy distinguishes not only what we teach and how we learn, but also who our students become. Through the passion and commitment of an outstanding faculty and staff, the school fosters the highest standards of academic and artistic achievement, moral growth and behavior, service to others, and athletic endeavor. We will clarify, strengthen, and refresh our rigorous and cohesive JK-12 educational program with a particular focus on innovation, entreprenuership, service, and wellness.
  • Foster a culture of thinking, exploration, and academic risk-taking.

  • Continue to attract, retain, and support an outstanding faculty and staff, building upon a tradition of excellence as the school enhances, envisions, develops, and implements programs.

  • Develop a signature program (such as a Social Entrepreneurship Program) where students positively impact the greater community by utilizing strong academic skills, creative problem-solving, and exceptional communication skills.

  • Improve vertical integration, collaboration, and transitions between and within each of our three divisions (Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools) to ensure a consistently strong, connected experience JK-12.

  • Foster a culture of wellness that promotes health and balance in mind, body, and spirit.

  • Develop a common understanding of the goals of our service-learning program and the best ways for those goals to be achieved. 

  • Explore in all three divisions and school-wide how we allocate time on a daily and annual basis to ensure that the schedule aligns with our mission and priorities.
