At Saint Stephen's, students in every division are offered a variety of opportunities to get involved in the life of the school. They will find activities that complement their interests in the arts, athletics, academic enrichment or community service. Whether a student enjoys taking music lessons, participating in intramural sports, facing an opponent across a chess board, helping build homes with Habitat for Humanity or dressing the part of an attorney for Mock Trial, there is something for him or her.
Saint Stephen's Episcopal School offers a tradition of excellence, providing a world-class education that nurtures each and every child. The Saint Stephen's World-Class After-school Program Series offers the same level of excellence you find during the school day. The series is tailored to provide enriching programs to stimulate the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of a child. Students can explore a new subject, discover a creative talent and strengthen a sports skill with varsity-level coaches while creating new friendships.
The Saint Stephen's World-Class After-school Program series runs throughout the year between 3:00pm-5:30pm. The length of time of each lesson depends on the program, and programs are divided into four individual seasons - Early Fall, Late Fall, Winter and Spring.
This Fall's exciting additions in music programs after school bring us private lessons in piano with Shirley Patterson, as well as a weekly combination of private and group violin lessons with Sarasota's premier Suzuki Violin teacher/trainer, Martha Shackford. Saint Stephen's is proud to bring the acclaimed Suzuki method of musical training to our students and parents. The off-campus program in Kung Fu at the Tang Martial Arts Center on Manatee Avenue, transportation from the school provided, further broaden the opportunities offered.
Our ever-popular After Care program for Pre-K and Lower School Students and the S.T.A.R.S. (Study Time After Regular School) program for Intermediate School students are also open between 3-5.30pm, though you cannot register for them online.
You will need to create an account in order to register your child for an After-school program.
