Learning at St. Stephen's School takes place all year round, with two exciting summer programs for high school students. Classes are conducted in English and boarding is available to students from around the world. Students who live in the greater Rome area may attend as day students.
Our featured summer programs at St. Stephen's:
- The Arts & Humanities Program
Open to students ages 13 to 18, the two-week Arts & Humanities summer program offers courses taught by the distinguished faculty of St. Stephen's School, along with exceptional local teachers.
- The Brown University-St. Stephen's School Pre-College Summer Program in Rome
Open to students between the ages of 16 and 18, the three-week Pre-College program offers courses taught by a combination of instructors from both Brown University and St. Stephen's School.
Students in both programs enroll in a language course (Italian or Latin), a core course (focusing on ancient Rome or Renaissance Art), and an elective course (course choices include Music, Drawing, Digital Photography, and Cooking, among others). There are breaks between classes, and a study hall period in the afternoons. The school's library and computer labs are open and available to students throughout the day.
Summer school students are housed on campus in the main villa, where they room alongside resident assistants who schedule afternoon sports activities and evening visits to cultural events around Rome. Gelato-runs are a daily occurrence. Weekends include visits to interesting locations around Italy, such as Pompeii, Sorrento, Siena, and Florence.
