Community Life

Our diverse, vibrant, and multicultural boarding community is centered on strong principles, which include trust, tolerance, and fellowship.

Mutual respect and cooperation are key to an inclusive atmosphere where boarding students form important bonds with faculty and with each other. Students also benefit from tailored, individualized attention. Ten boarding faculty live in separate apartments on campus on the same floors as our student dorm rooms. An emphasis on furthering individual as well as group awareness and confidence is stressed as students learn self-direction and develop the maturity to make informed decisions. Students are contributing members to St. Stephen’s both within the school and through various programs that extend beyond the classroom.
