Come As You Are

At St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes, we often say that this is a place where you can come as you are. Your children will be respected and celebrated for their gifts and talents—those both known and currently unknown—and you will find that here, they will dream big, sing loudly, and work hard without you ever having to worry they are losing sight of who they are and who you know them to be.


At St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School, a student can, if they choose, try something new, tackle a new sport, instrument, or take the stage for the first time. A student can be more than one thing, or more than what they have always been and always thought they would be. An academic can become an artist, a lacrosse player can be a lead in the school play. This is a place where the cast isn’t already decided before auditions because new voices, new talent are encouraged each time to give it a go. This is a place of tradition with a culture of inclusion which allows new chapters of our school’s history to be written every day. And through all the learning and exploring and dreaming big, students develop a confidence in themselves; they find the power and value in their talents, big and small; they can look in the mirror and be happy with who they see because adults in this community honor them for who they are, not for who the student might believe the world wants them to be.
