The St. Stephen¡¯s Christian Academy was established in 2004 by Pastor William A.
Gray III asked Mrs.
Lucille Jennings, a former school principal, to help implement a Christian based early education school.
Academy¡¯s mission is to reinforce Christian principals in the process of educating our children to strive higher.
This is accomplished through the combination of having (degreed) teachers, an aggressive educational curriculum, and limited size classes.
Our teachers are committed to providing each child with a positive solid foundation that brings out their best.
