School Notes

  • We want our children to grow up with a passionate desire to seek and understand truth. We do not want well-educated adults who have merely learned to "win" arguments or "spin" facts. Rather, they should understand truth and be concerned to promote and defend it persuasively. We believe that this is an essential component of healthy families, a healthy culture, government, and society.

From the warm welcome at the beginning, to the heart of the teachers and staff to truly know each of their students' needs, to the high standards of the academics and instruction, to the culture of excellence and godly consideration that produces self-governing students, St Stephens has exceeded our expectations in every way. Truly, our family has been blessed in countless ways by the St Stephens community. What a stunning example of Christian community, grace and truth, wisdom, and professionalism we have experienced through our interactions with the staff! We appreciate the emphasis on decorum and inner character over image, and see the character of the faculty and administration shine through in everything they do! What a breath of fresh air in the private school arena St Stephens is!

My son was going to a different school every year from pre-k to first grade, private, immersion, public. After first grade at our local Grade A public school, we asked ourselves what did he learned in one year? We couldn't name anything significant. That's when we decided that his time was too precious to be skating through his grade school years. We were so happy to have found a home at St. Stephens for second grade. He came home everyday telling us all the new things he has learned. The amount of geography and civilization that he learned in second grade was similar to our 7th grade public middle school child, just not as in-depth. The smaller class size was extremely beneficial for our son who can be easily distracted. His teacher made him accountable for his work. He had a lot of re-dos, it was painful, but necessary. He is in third grade now, and he is happy to be at St. Stephens; he talks about staying through high school. The curriculum is difficult, but now I realize that my son does have the capacity to learn so much more, when it is expected of him.

We have attended St. Stephens Academy for 8 years now and we are so pleased with the education our children are receiving. The staff cares about our children and their success. Our children are not only being taught, but are learning to love learning. They are not being told what to think, but how to think and that will serve them long after their academic years.
