Before You Take Off for Summer Vacation, Take a Copy of the Cortile Magazine with You!

The Spring/Summer 2018 issue of The Cortile is available online.  You may access your copy by clicking here.  


Our Head's Corner provides information about what's in store. 

As the 2017-18 school year comes to a close, students, faculty and staff are looking forward to enjoying the carefree days of summer. With IB exams and graduation behind them, eighty St. Stephen’s seniors are contemplating a variety of options, creative endeavors, stimulating challenges, and all that awaits them at university. But before new beginnings and summer holidays, there’s one more thing we hope you’ll do: read the latest issue of The Cortile magazine! 

Our idea for this edition started off with wanting to promote the exceptional writing, design and artistic talent within our current students and parents, as well as our alumni and former parents. As usual, we were delightfully surprised by the extraordinary submissions we received. As a result, there’s so much in store for you in our Spring/Summer issue, starting with a compelling selection from our Creative Writing students, winners of the Scholastic Writing Awards, inspired as always by the Arts Department’s Creative Writing teacher and award-winning author and poet, Moira Egan.

And there's so much more. To continue reading, click here and scroll to page 3.

Summer Programs at St. Stephen's

As the regular school year draws to a close we look ahead once again to an exciting array of summer programs hosted by the school.  Please find below program dates and details:



  1. Poynter Institute'sGlobal Fact 5 conferenceJune 20 - June 22.  It is a privilege to host this prestigious event.  Please click on this link to learn more about the organization and its practices:


Lectures and seminars will take place during the day from approximately 9 am until 2 pm. Please know that upwards of 200 journalists from around the world will participate.


  1. University of California at Davis (UC Davis), June 19th - July 16th.


UC Davis students range in age from 18-22.  While their academic program focuses on "Rome as the classroom," their more general goal is to enjoy three weeks of Italo-Romano cultural immersion.

  1. The Paideia Institute's Living Latin in Rome, July 1st - July 19th.  


This is a very intensive Latin study course designed for high school students.  All classes and social events are conducted in Latin. The program of study culminates with an evening of student performances.  Last summer's performances consisted of myths selected from Ovid's Metamorphoses.


 It's a very enjoyable way to spend part of a summer evening.


  1. Arts and Humanities, July 22nd - August 4th.


This description from our website says it all:


The 2018 Arts & Humanities Program dates: July 22 - August 4, 2018
