If you are considering Saint Stephen’s for your child(ren), there is nothing that compares to an actual visit to campus. You’ll not only have an opportunity to tour all of our amazing, state-of-the-art facilities, but you’ll also get a feel for the true vibe of the place. It’s common to have the chance to interact with teachers, administrators, coaches, other parents and students during your visit. You may look in on classroom lessons or extracurricular activities. Campus tours last approximately one hour and can be arranged for almost any day of the week and at any time during the year.
Once you’ve made your initial campus visit and decided to submit an application for enrollment, we will schedule a “shadow” visit, which allows your child to attend classes and have lunch with our students. In grades 4-12, they are paired with a student host who helps them navigate throughout the day. There’s no better way for your child to see just what it means to be a Saint Stephen’s Falcon! A typical shadow visit lasts a full day, but can be shortened if necessary. We administer admissions testing during this visit in order to assess your child’s readiness for the Saint Stephen’s academic curriculum.
