At Stevenson, we believe that education should do more than kindle students’ delight in learning and prepare them for continued academic success. We believe that school can lay the groundwork for a joyful life. You are here to prepare for a joyful and fulfilling life now, through your college years, and beyond. We will present you with opportunities to sharpen your mind, to expand your academic knowledge, and to stretch your intellectual reach while you develop your skills as an independent thinker and confident communicator.

We want you to love learning and achievement, but we also want you to enjoy the arts, nature, recreation, and friends as you develop your own evolving perspective on the world. Within Stevenson’s diverse community, you will learn to respect yourself and respect everyone else whose life touches yours. You’ll carry the friendships and connections with fellow students and the faculty that you make here at Stevenson with you for the rest of your life.


Classes at Stevenson are very challenging, and the curriculum is designed for motivated students who are ready for that challenge. Our students are here to get the very best education possible and to interact on a daily basis with like-minded classmates and engaging, passionate teachers. We have a broad curriculum that will push even the strongest of students.
