International Applicants

International Student Applicants

St. Stephen’s 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.

The application process is the same for international and domestic students. We highly encourage all applicants to visit the campus for an admission event or for a tour and the required interview. We realize that a campus visit is not always possible and will schedule interviews by SKYPE or Face Time when necessary.

About seventeen percent of our Upper School student body of 486 are international students. We look for students who will participate in our many clubs and student organizations, athletics, visual and performing arts, community service, leadership, and outdoor education programs.

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. 

U.S. News & World Report has once again named Austin as the number 1 best place to live. Students take advantage of the music, culture, technology, higher education, and outdoor activities that the city is known for.

International Student Services

The staff (7 people!) 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 Program 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.
