From St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School

Pursuing Knowledge+Goodness Together. SSSAS is a top college preparatory Episcopal School in Alexandria, 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 program provides elementary-aged children with a firm foundation in essential skills and an introduction to abstract intellectual concepts. From the beginning, including our Reggio-inspired Early Saints for 3-year-olds and junior kindergarten, solid work habits are stressed, providing a foundation for students to learn organizational strategies and to acquire note- and test-taking skills.
