In the tradition of Episcopal school education, St. Stephen's is a community rooted in faith and committed to providing a challenging academic curriculum while remaining sensitive to the development of the whole child. The School places great emphasis on the creation of a safe, family environment where the unique worth and beauty of all human beings can be proclaimed as creations of a loving, empowering God.
I believe in God above, I believe in Jesus' love. I believe His Spirit too, comes to teach me what to do. I believe that I should be kind and loving, Lord, like thee.
As a member of the St. Stephen’s School Community, I accept personal responsibility for my actions and their impact on other members of the community. At all times I will exhibit academic integrity, cultivate a safe and respectful environment, and encourage all others to do the same. Specifically, I will not lie, steal, cheat, nor use language/behavior that is harmful to others.
The St. Stephen’s Honor Code is discussed with and signed by all students.
