Since our founding more than 70 years ago, St. Stephen's Episcopal School has maintained a fierce attachment to the land. Our school identity today is bound to the natural environment around us.
With more than 370 acres of land and nearly 400 vertical feet of elevation change, our campus serves as an interactive learning laboratory and a place to enjoy a wide range of educational activities and outdoor adventures.
Our Outdoor Education and Adventures Program is designed to develop students’ self-confidence, resilience and self-sufficiency, while fostering in them a deep respect for, knowledge of and engagement in the natural world.
The program offers students a variety of outdoor opportunities — from mountain biking, hiking and land management projects on campus, to caving, canoeing and rock climbing in the Texas Hill Country or other more distant locations.
