COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

For the Fall of 2020, our Early Saints through Kindergarten, are learning in-person. Grades 1-12 began the school year in distance learning and is now doing a gradual, staggered return at each division. This allows us to monitor the impact of having our students and faculty together in-person while making any necessary adjustments to ensure the success of our community’s safe return to campus.

From St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School

SSSAS is a college preparatory Episcopal Church School in the Diocese of Virginia that educates boys and girls from ages 3 through grade 12. SSSAS serves students from Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

We have three distinct campuses, each tailored to meet the needs of the students within. Lower School for ages 3 - grade 5; Middle School for grades 6-8; and Upper School for grades 9-12.

We set high academic standards through a demanding college-prep curriculum. Our academic program gives students a firm grasp of fundamental skills and develops their ability to think and write creatively, critically, and independently. Our curriculum fosters an appreciation for the diversity and interconnectedness of human experience; we challenge our students to ask questions, give consideration to other points of view, and never settle for the easy answer.

Our mission is to pursue goodness as well as knowledge and to honor the unique value of each of our members as a child of God.

    We have experienced the lower, middle, and upper schools and our children have had extraordinary teachers who have taken the time to get to know and appreciate them as individuals. Small class size (around 16 kids per class) contributes to this, but it’s just as much about the genuine interest and care that they show our children. Every time our teenagers rave about their teachers at dinner (a frequent occurrence!) my wife and I feel so fortunate that the strong connections they formed with teachers in the Lower School have been replicated in the other divisions. Our kids have different strengths and interests and they have each found a home and great friends through academics, the arts and athletics. Speaking of the arts, our daughter was so excited to watch the Tonys with friends and then learn that next year’s theater/arts trip to NYC will include seeing Hadestown and having dinner with the cast!

    My colleagues in the Upper School are incredible! They are a tremendous talent in their academic disciplines whether it is in music, art, science, math, English, or history. At the same time, they also want to be role models and mentors to their students in order to build a positive and strong sense of community. With out a doubt, SSSAS most certainly exemplifies the concept that teachers and staff who are thoroughly invested and engaged in their school help students become successful no matter their background.
    My experience has been excellent! The teachers have done an excellent job of preparing me for college. The community is excellent and supportive. Further, the athletics and art atmosphere make our community a place I want to come to everyday!
