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.

Campus Visit Days

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

Your campus visit will include a Question & Answer session, campus and dorm tour, lunch with current international students, and student and parent interviews. This visit allows you to learn more about St. Stephen’s academic, residential, and extra-curricular opportunities. There are a limited number of spaces available each day and reservations are required. Applicants from PRC, Hong Kong, and Taiwan may ONLY visit campus on the dates listed below.
