Our children have been going to St. Stephen's for the past year & a half. We love the mission of the school, the rigorous curriculum, & family community built into the school. As an elementary public school teacher, I see the ways that the public school systems are not measuring up. Our children have far exceeded students in their same grade in the public school system, all while acquiring a Biblical world view & knowledge of the scriptures.

Having moved our two children from another area private school two years ago, we are THRILLED with what we've found in SSCCA. The curriculum is challenging, but not beyond their capabilities; and the close-knit sense of family and community is exactly what we wanted. The parent/teacher communication is very open and free, and, because of the small class sizes, our children have bonded with many friends in the school, not just certain "cliques." Love, love, love SSCCA!

My daughter has been at this school for about 2 years and I am very happy. We just moved to Ellicott City and I still drive 25mins in the morning to take her to school. I am really impressed by the fact that they attend Chapel every morning. I am also impressed with their teachers too. They take time to correct my daughter just like I believe they will do with their own children. I highly recommend this school for those who want a Christian upbringing for their Children.

This is an extremely welcoming school. This is my son's first year there and he is excited to continue his education through 8th grade. I highly recommend SSCCA to any parent who wants their child to be in a safe, friendly, caring community.

St Stephen's Classical Christian Academy provides a phenomenal education from a staff of focused and committed people in a caring, genuine environment. We have 2 children attending SSCCA over the past 7 years and continually feel blessed to have found such a dedicated school to educate and guide our children not only in academics but also in solid Christian values and morals.The children are challenged yet supported and given individual attention by caring teachers. Both my children have blossomed at SSCCA and love school!

We have two boys enrolled, one in the regular program and one in the learning differences program. This is our third year. This school, the environment, the teachers and the curriculum have made such a huge difference after just one year in both of our boys. They have achieved more academic knowledge and success and boundless personal confidence after one year in this school then three or five years in the local public schools. My only regret is that we didn't enroll earlier.
