Leadership

St. Stephen’s provides an engaging academic environment for day and boarding students who are known, supported and celebrated for their individual talents and interests. It's a place full of people who want to make a difference in the world.

At St. Stephen’s, our dedicated faculty and staff are tenacious and constant in their commitment to providing an academically challenging experience for our students within the context of a balanced program in academics, athletics and the arts. Our mission, vision and core values are rooted in progressive, yet resolute, principles — provide rigorous academics, build a diverse student body, develop creative thinkers, support social justice, shape global leaders, nourish the spirit, look beyond ourselves to serve others, and promote equity within our school walls and beyond.

St. Stephen’s is a spirit-centered school of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. Grounded in the Episcopal tradition, we respect and honor all faiths and support students as they make their own spiritual journeys while reinforcing their moral growth. Our school prayer, which we recite together daily in Chapel, calls upon all of us to see our life as a journey together and empowers us to make a difference in the world “with open minds, open hearts and open doors.”

Please schedule a tour of campus to learn first-hand what makes St. Stephen’s so special. If you want a school where your children will be known and loved for their individuality and where they will work to become the best version of themselves, then you have found your school.

Please contact our Admission Office to learn more about this extraordinary school on a hill. We hope to meet you when you visit.
