Homeschool Partnership Program

Saint Stephen School partners with parents in their God-given role as the primary educators of their children. For this reason, we are eager to support parents who have discerned homeschooling for their child by offering the option to enrich the education they offer at home.


Homeschool students in grades 3-8 join our full-time students in the same classroom on Wednesdays and Fridays to be enriched by our liberal arts curriculum. Families are welcome to join us for school Mass and for field trips.
