Discovery Weekend

Spanning four days from Dec. 3-6, 2021, Discovery Weekend is designed to give you a sense of what it’s like to go to school at St. Stephen’s. The weekend offers a full range of activities, including a financial aid workshop and SSAT test, as well as the chance to attend theatre performances, athletic competitions and Campus Visit Days (featuring campus tours, mock classes and Q&A sessions). Register now for Discovery Weekend.

Campus Visit Days

Campus Visit Days are offered to students applying for the 2022-23 academic year. We will host visit days in November 2021, December 2021 (during Discovery Weekend) and January 2022. You can see the specific dates and times of these visit days by clicking on the links in the Middle School and Upper School sections below.
All of these Campus Visit Days offer the same program (including the ones during Discovery Weekend), so please register for only one Campus Visit Day. There are a limited number of campus visit opportunities and registration opportunities will close at capacity.

Prospective students and up to two parents may attend. Campus visits are not required to complete an application to St. Stephen’s.

Boarding applicants are welcome to register for the Campus Visit Days or make a campus visit appointment by sending an email to Ramona Ward.
