High School Diploma

The four-year program of studies leading to the American High School Diploma balances a broad exposure to the six major academic disciplines (English, Modern and Classical Languages, Mathematics, Experimental Science, Humanities and the Arts), while encouraging students to pursue in-depth study in areas of personal interest through a choice of electives.

Postgraduate Studies

St. Stephen’s offers a postgraduate year of studies beyond high school graduation, which allows students to continue preparing for the college or university of their choice. This extra year often provides an opportunity for students to strengthen their skills, enhance their cultural awareness, and develop greater maturity academically, socially, and athletically.
