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.

In Person 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 extracurricular 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. Visit Days are open to boarding students applying to grades 8-10.

In order to be considered for the first round of admission decisions, students registered for the January 29th Visit Day must have completed all parts of the Application for Admission, with the exception of the interview, before arriving on campus.

SSAT - Standardized Testing

St. Stephen's accepts SSAT scores (code 6956).

To be considered in the first round of admission decisions, the SSAT must be taken by January 25th, 2022. While there isn't a minimum score that we look for, the most successful students tend to have a total scale score in the 2000 range. TOEFL (code B078) and Duolingo scores are not required but may be submitted in addition to the SSAT. 

St. Stephen’s accepts the SSAT Standard Application Online (SAO). Once the SAO is complete, students may email Ramona Ward to access the St. Stephen's online checklist.
