Thank you so much for your interest in Saint Stephen’s Episcopal School and Our Mission. As you explore this website, realize that you are getting just a brief introduction to what makes the learning environment for our students truly extraordinary. Whether it is interdisciplinary Science/Technology/Engineering/Arts/Mathematics (STEAM), Global Scholars, Capstone, Marine Science Ocean Academy, Arts Conservancy Music/Performing Arts, Project-Based Learning, or a multitude of other explorations that your child might be interested in pursuing, Saint Stephen’s provides an enriching learning experience for each student. Our Promise is that every child will be known and every child will be valued.
When you visit our campus, you will quickly see that our students and alumni comprise the very heart and soul of who we are. They are simply remarkable. Saint Stephen’s students are from different experiences, faiths, and cultures; all take part in the joy of discovery and personal and academic growth here. Many of our students were born and raised in Florida, while many others come from across the country or from across the world. Saint Stephen’s is a destination for learning. On a daily basis, our students hail from the local and surrounding Manatee/Sarasota area, traveling to and from Apollo Beach, Parrish, Palmetto, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, Holmes Beach, and Siesta Key to join us on campus.
Our faculty members are among the most dedicated and accomplished professionals you’ll find anywhere. They are superb in the classroom, of course, but they also excel in their work with students in clubs, sports, and numerous other extracurricular activities, such as our award-winning Academic Team, Latin Team, Mu Alpha Theta Math Team, Harvard Model Congress, Columbia Model UN, Theatre Odyssey, and many others. To be a teacher at Saint Stephen’s is to live up to the awesome responsibility of nurture, guidance, and care for children and young adults. Collaboration and professional development are the hallmarks of the Saint Stephen’s faculty. They model continual learning and mutual respect as they work together to benefit our students.
