      Exceptional Every Day

Exceptional every day. St. Stephen’s world-class educators may make offering outstanding academic, athletic and fine arts programming appear effortless, but providing exceptional experiences every day takes hard work — and a lot of support. That is why we rely on Spartan parents, alumni, teachers, staff, trustees, grandparents and friends to contribute to the school’s Annual Fund each year.

With your support, we are able to provide students with an outstanding educational experience that transcends the classroom and enhances students’ knowledge that they are valued and have something special to contribute to the world. Please join us in providing meaningful — transformational — opportunities to our students by contributing to the 2018-19 Annual Fund campaign. Thank you for supporting our Spartans!

When determining the ways you will support St. Stephen’s each year, please support the Annual Fund, First!

Our Students Directly Benefit from Your Gift

Like most independent schools, St. Stephen’s tuition does not cover the total expense of educating a student and providing enhanced academic, athletic and fine arts programs. A gift to the Annual Fund of $2,500 or more closes the gap between tuition and the true cost of educating each child. 

Your Support Matters

St. Stephen’s Episcopal School strives to inspire a lasting love of learning and spirit of service in every student so when they graduate from The Hill, our Spartans go on to live great lives of meaning and enrich the world. We believe the St. Stephen’s experience is truly transformational. That is why we ask you to help strengthen our exceptional programs and offerings by making a gift to the Annual Fund every year. Thank you for supporting our students!
