How do I apply to Saint Stephen School?

In order to apply to Saint Stephen School you can access our application online through the Admissions tab. Once you have submitted a complete application packet, your family will be contacted for an interview.

What is the deadline for submitting an application?

Although the deadline is December 1st, the application form, application fee ($225), and all related materials and documents should be completed and returned as soon as possible. Interviews are scheduled in the order in which applications are received. In order to ensure that an interview can be arranged prior to the first round of decisions, families are encouraged to apply according to the deadlines, which can be found under Timeline. You may still send in the forms after the deadline for our rolling admissions, which is based upon availability. However, interviews are scheduled only when a potential seat becomes available.

What are the age requirements for admission to Saint Stephen School?

In accordance with the Archdiocesan of New York’s regulations, students will be admitted to kindergarten only if they will be five years old by the end of December and to the first grade only if they will be six years old by the end of December. Additionally, students applying for pre-kindergarten must be three years old by the end of December for the pre-kindergarten 3 program and four years old by the end of December for the pre-kindergarten 4 program. All children must be toilet trained upon entering the school.

When looking for a school we wanted to find one that would teach the same morals and values that we try to teach at home. In St. Stephen we found so much more, it truly is a home away from home. Our children are happy which makes us, as parents, happy.
