Upper School Course Guide

Academic Departments

In today’s Information Age, critical thinking skills are more essential than ever. St. Stephen’s high school students learn more than facts and figures; they learn to question and reason independently. Our distinguished faculty is diverse and accomplished in a wide range of fields, but it is united in its passion for nurturing the intellectual and cultural growth of all students.

No matter what their interests may be, from literature, the social sciences, and foreign language, to science and technology, to the visual and performing arts, our broad course offerings give students the opportunities to pursue them. And while our academic standards are rigorous, the learning environment at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School recognizes and supports each student’s unique capabilities.
