PRC, Hong Kong, and Taiwan Applicant Instructions

For years, St. Stephen's has had an excellent relationship with students from the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan who have thrived academically at our school. Due to the increase in the number of applicants from these countries/territories, we have established Campus Visit and Interview procedures for students who are from these areas.

Virtual Campus Visit Days

These days are scheduled for families from PRC, Hong Kong and Taiwan only.

Your virtual visit will include an information session with details on the academic program, residential life, and extra curricular opportunities. There will be an question and answer session and a translator will be on the Zoom virtual call. We hope both parent and student will attend these sessions.

There are a limited number of spaces available each day and reservations are required. Applicants from PRC, Hong Kong, and Taiwan may ONLY attend these virtual visit opportunities on the dates listed below.
