Plans continue to move forward to fund and construct the Saint Stephen’s S.T.E.A.M. Center. This dedicated space will not only provide ample room for the visual and performing arts, but it will also enhance our science, technology, engineering, and math programs for all Pre-K3 through 12th-grade students.

This project is the largest single fund-raising campaign the school has ever embarked on and, during the past 15 months, we have remained in what we’ve termed the “quiet phase” of the campaign, hosting private dinners, small gatherings, and one-on-one donor meetings. To date, we have raised $6.7-million toward our ultimate goal of $10-13 million. Final costs are fluid and will likely remain that way for the near future due to design changes and fluctuations in the price of materials, etc. Those costs will all be clarified as we get closer to the start date of construction.

On Dec. 7, 2022, Design Development was completed and basic schematic drawings were sent to Willis Smith Construction for a re-estimate. There have been some slight design changes since the beginning of the project, but the basic design and function of the building remain the same. Our academic department chairs have been included in a variety of discussions about programming and the potential uses for the new space. They are excited about the incredible opportunity for cross collaboration within all grade levels that will organically happen in this building.
