How to Apply

Applications for the 2021-22 school year are now being accepted. If you would like to apply for the 2020-21 school year, please contact our Admissions Coordinator, Amber Heidt, to inquire about space as most of our classes are full.

Step One: Schedule a Tour

Come see what St. Stephen’s Academy is all about! Tours are designed for parents and children to allow you to learn about our school community, learning environment, and philosophy, as well as ask questions. Tours last approximately 1 hour. At this time all campus visitors are asked to wear masks during their tour. Please contact Amber Heidt to set up your tour today!

Step Two: Complete and Submit Application

The application for each new student must be accompanied by a $150 non-refundable application fee.
The Student Questionnaire must be submitted with an application for students applying to grades 6-12.

Step Three: Schedule Student Placement Evaluation

Following review of the application, the Admissions Coordinator will contact you to schedule a placement evaluation for your student.

Step Four: Schedule Day of Shadowing (Grades 6-12)

The Admissions Coordinator will contact you to schedule a day of shadowing for your student and lunch with our Dean of Students.

Step Five: Schedule Parent Interview

Following the placement evaluation, the school administration will review the evaluation and recommend the next step. If an interview is recommended, the Admissions Coordinator will contact you to schedule a parent interview with the headmaster and principal. The purpose of the parent interview is to ensure that parents fully understand St. Stephen’s values, mission, and philosophy. It is essential that the relationship between school and home be one of openness and mutual support. We take seriously the role that we are given by parents who entrust their children to us for education. The interview ensures that families are aligned with St. Stephen’s in mutual pursuit of excellence in education. Incoming 6th-12th grade students will also be asked to attend the interview.
