At St. Stephen School we pray that you and your family are safe and healthy during this time. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, our school is unable to have visitors to campus, meaning that our Admissions Team is available to connect virtually! Through the use of technology such as Zoom Conferencing, you can now connect with our Admissions Department in a variety of ways to ensure that all your needs and questions are being answered about our admissions process.
Our Admissions Director will be hosting a question and answer sessions via a private Zoom conferencing portal or over the phone for prospective families. This unique opportunity provides you with the ability to learn more about student life and the important aspects of our school such as: Why Catholic education, our curriculum, the technology in the classroom, arts & music, athletics, and clubs & activities.
Applications for the 2021-2022 School Year are open. Currently all grades for the 21/22 school year have a waitlist. Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will open on August 1, 2021.
St. Stephen School accepts children for the purposes of religious and academic formation. Provided there are openings, the school admits students in the following order of priority:
- Siblings of currently enrolled students
- The children of officially registered parishioners* of St. Stephen Parish with consideration given to length of time that the parishioners are registered in St. Stephen Parish
- Catholic children registered at another parish
- Children of another faith background
*Parishioners are defined as Catholic households registered in the parish, regularly worshiping at Sunday Mass, participating in parish life, and contributing to the financial support of the parish by regular use of contribution envelopes.
Required forms and documents are all collected in the SchoolAdmin portal upon enrollment. Any families with a special health care need are recommended to contact the school office for a consultation with the nurse to discuss the accommodations requested.
Reading and math screenings may be administered to students in grades 2 through 8 who are new to the school. The purpose of these tests is to determine acceptance and/or class placement. A conference with the principal will be scheduled if necessary prior to acceptance.
All new students are on a one year probationary period. Registration usually takes place at the end of December.
