St. Stephen’s Episcopal School, located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, provides an engaging academic environment for day and boarding students who are known, supported and celebrated for their individual talents and interests.
The academic program at St. Stephen’s is grounded in the tradition of the liberal arts. The educational experience fosters openness, candor and respect, as students learn how to develop independent points of view while using evidence to challenge or support hypotheses.
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.
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. Our school supports students and reinforces their moral growth as they make their individual spiritual journeys. Our school prayer, which we recite together 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.”
St. Stephen’s is a school where children are known and loved individually and where they work to become the best version of themselves.
