Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church moved onto the current property in Wimberley in the early 1970's. The beautiful mission chapel and grounds were completed as a replica of San Francisco de la Espada in San Antonio in 1976. Over the following years the parish added a parish hall and a log cabin. During a study of the goals of the parish, an interest in a school for young children emerged. Funding was found for a building, and the process began.
With the funding and support of the Burdine Johnson Foundation, the doors of St. Stephen's Episcopal School opened in September of 1989. Bishop Earl McArthur, The Rev. Ted Hervey, The Rev. Phil Parham, The Rev. Ted Knies, The Rev. George "Mac" Keeble, The Rev. Dr. Patrick Gahan and the current Rector, The Rev. Sandra Casey-Martus have all had opportunities to add to this outreach of Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church.
Currently, classes are offered from PreK3 through Sixth Grade. Through the vision and determination of the church and school community, we continue to provide an exceptional education for children from Wimberley and surrounding communities whose families choose St. Stephen's.
