The School

St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School is one of the six Episcopal Church Schools in the Diocese of Virginia, and has a long tradition of providing its students with an excellent college preparatory education in Northern Virginia. The stated mission of St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School is to pursue goodness as well as knowledge, and to honor the unique value of each member as a child of God in a caring community. The school helps all students succeed in a complex and changing world by inspiring a passion for learning, an enthusiasm for athletic and artistic endeavor, a striving for excellence, a celebration of diversity, and a commitment to service. The school today reflects the 1991 merger of two formerly separate schools, namely St. Agnes, founded in 1924, and St. Stephen’s, founded in 1944, that now provides coeducational education through high school. The two schools were established by Alexandria Episcopalians who sought to provide intellectual, physical, and moral development in independent schools for girls and boys.

Before the merger, St. Agnes offered kindergarten through twelfth grade for girls, and kindergarten through second grade for boys. St. Stephen’s, the sole Episcopal day school in Alexandria for boys, offered third through eighth grade during its founding year. However, the need and desire to provide upper school classes were recognized and grades nine through twelve were soon added. Today, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School educates boys and girls from junior kindergarten (JK) through grade 12, and serves students from Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. Currently enrolled students hail from Alexandria, Arlington, McLean, Falls Church, Fairfax County, Prince George’s County, and Washington, D.C. Today, the school consists of three distinct campuses, each uniquely tailored to meet the needs of its students. The Lower School (grades JK-5) is located on Fontaine Street; the Middle School (6-8) is sited on Braddock Road; and the Upper School (9-12) is found on St. Stephen’s Road.
