in the heart of Rome
Founded in 1964, St. Stephen's provides a demanding classical and liberal arts college-preparatory curriculum. We offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program in grades 11 and 12, as well as the American High School Diploma and a selection of Advanced Placement examinations.
This approach coupled with the international exposure students receive from the diverse, cultural surroundings of Rome, the heart of the Western civilization, enriches them in immeasurable ways.
Eight resident faculty provide personal and academic support, as well as a variety of opportunities to explore and experience the wonders of Rome, Italy and Europe.
The Aventina Student Newspaper is made by the students, for the students - covering international news, school sports, what's happening in Rome and even restaurant reviews. For an insight into the creativity of our student body, The Ink Magazine was created by St. Stephen's pupils to showcase their creative talents.
St. Stephen's is a four-year, independent, non-denominational, boarding and day school that draws on the strengths of both American and European education traditions to give our students a deeper understanding of the world grounded in western culture. Through close mentoring, intellectual inquiry and inspired teaching in a small class setting, we motivate students to reach their fullest potential and take responsibility for their academic achievement, which readies them for the most competitive universities on both sides of the Atlantic and the joys and benefits of lifelong learning. We foster a warm, collaborative environment – enriched by a vibrant boarding program -- so young people gain the confidence to find their true balance and engage fully as caring citizens in a diverse international community. We examine the rich historical layers of Rome as a source for academic inspiration and encourage students to engage its dynamic urban environment. We strive to provide a holistic preparatory experience that lays the foundation for continued academic achievement and a fulfilling life.
