International Applicants

St. Stephen’s Episcopal School is home to students from many countries, states, and Austin. In our multicultural community, you will find students who excel in a challenging academic environment and faculty who provide a world-class education. All of our students are college-bound and many matriculate to the most competitive and prestigious universities. Our international students participate in our many clubs and student organizations, athletics, visual and performing arts, community service, leadership, and outdoor adventure programs. 

Due to the challenges associated with test administration outside of the Austin area at this time, students who are applying for boarding have the option of not submitting standardized test scores this year. Boarding applicants who do not submit test scores will not be at a disadvantage in the selection process. We will evaluate each application using our holistic approach that considers all other application documents and the personal interview. Please don’t hesitate to contact the Admission Office with any questions.

Please take a look at our Campus Visit web page to review in-person and virtual opportunities to connect with our community.  We hope you will also review the videos on our boarding program web page. We are scheduling in-person and Zoom interviews and encourage you to send an email to Ramona Ward  to make an appointment.

Residential Life

The Residential Life program is the heartbeat of the school.  In addition to the things you would expect (like working closely with the Director of Safety and Security, assigning rooms and managing the dorm parents) Director of Residential Life Gene Phillips schedules hundreds of weekday and weekend activities, making sure students live a life balanced through academic support, activities, and service. 

Austin has consistently been ranked as one of the top places to live in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report. Students take advantage of the music, culture, technology, higher education, and outdoor activities that the city is known for.

International Student Services

The seven member staff in our International Office is known as one of the best. They take a personal interest in each student and engage them in activities on and off campus. The International Office communicates directly with parents, assists in all academic matters, directs a host family program (dinner and weekend visits), and plans numerous trips and other social activities on and off campus.
