Frequently Asked Questions



  • What makes Saint Stephen’s college preparatory curriculum unique?

    There is no question of our academic reputation, over 40 years strong, surpassing local, state and national test scores. Our curriculum is tied to a scope and sequence; each year builds on the next so that true learning takes place. We do not emphasize standardized testing or teach to a test, but rather create an environment where students are encouraged to develop meaningful understanding of subjects. Teachers are a large part of the equation, creative in their approach to teaching to ensure effectiveness with each student. Curriculum is developed based on the best available research and not decided as a result of the talents or bias of a teacher or the merits of a single text or instructional tool.
