Welcome to St. Stephen's Episcopal School, the school on a hilltop. Here we see our students, faculty and staff as a family. A family that eats, plays, learns and worships together — every day. We see faces from around the globe walking across our hill country campus, united by a spirit of inquiry. We see that forging strong individuals is the true path to building a more compassionate, intelligent, and capable community. It is here that we see beyond ourselves and look squarely at the world believing that we can make a difference in it. And here, our eyes, minds and hearts are as wide open as the place we call home.
We look forward to getting to know you,
Associate Head of School for Enrollment Management and Financial Aid
