Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

St. Stephen's is committed to providing a diverse learning experience

St. Stephen’s supports diversity as an essential component of a quality education that encourages respect for and empowerment of the individual and discourages the formation of stereotypes and prejudices. Through our steadfast commitment to diversity, St. Stephen’s broadens the educational experience of all students. St. Stephen’s further believes that our commitment to diversity is an ongoing process, which will continue to strengthen and enhance our school community.

The school actively seeks students from a variety of backgrounds and from all areas of Austin. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and we support and nurture their differences as well as work to prepare them for their future contributions to our increasingly diverse world.


In many ways, diversity is the foundation of the curriculum of St. Stephen’s. Through readings, classroom discussions and movies and through lessons taught at every grade level, multiple voices and differing backgrounds at SSES are integral to our strong academic program.

Community Opportunities

St. Stephen’s offers many opportunities for students to travel abroad and engage in activities and programs that will expose them to the global community. St. Stephen's believes that summer adventures broaden our students' understanding of the world, strengthen their applications to colleges and universities, and prepare them for the day when careers require that they collaborate in a global economy. Trips offered to our students include Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Spain, France, Italy and many others.
