School Notes

  • Founded in 1952, Stevenson School is a selective coeducational PK-12 boarding and day school with 730 students and 30 buildings on 50 acres of land across two campuses. The 500-student upper division, comprised of grades 9-12, is located on the Pebble Beach Campus, where about 60% of students reside in six faculty-supervised dormitories; the lower and middle divisions, totaling about 230 students in grades PK-8, are located on the Carmel Campus.As a California school enlightened by a global sensibility, Stevenson is premised on a vision of education as the means by which we discover the world and contribute to its transformation. We believe that one`s education is best pursued in the company of others, for others` benefit as well as one`s own. Our Latin motto-Suaviter in modo, fortiter in re ("Gentle in manner, resolute in deed")-inspires humility and perseverance. Our mission includes three aims: to prepare students for success in school and life beyond school, to foster their passion for learning and achievement, and to help them shape a joyful life.Stevenson offers a values-driven community experience influenced by the distinctive natural beauty, ecological biodiversity, and contemplative culture of the Central Coast.
