From The Steward School

Steward is today’s school for tomorrow’s world.

The Steward School prepares students to help shape the future. Students at this independent JK-12 school are engaged on a deeply personal level by a robust and challenging curriculum in an environment of boundless creativity. Here, learning and growth are achieved through foundational skills, innovative problem-solving, and the fearless exploration of topics that define our time. The Steward School is intentionally designed to encourage meaningful connections in an atmosphere of mutual care and respect. Students are continually engaged by topics and ideas that encourage the critical thought, empathy, civil discourse, and inspired thinking that will be necessary to continue moving the world forward. The Steward School is education for the world ahead.

Variable Tuition, which customizes tuition based on what a family can afford, as well as Merit Grants for Upper School students, make this more accessible than you might think.
