Many independent schools are driven by a “bigger, better, faster” ethic. At Steward, we are driven by the notion that smaller is better — a smaller environment creating deeper relationships, greater opportunities, and enhanced learning.
While competition is important, students thrive in an atmosphere that doesn’t place competition above character, balance, and the profound need to feel confident stepping beyond one’s own comfort zone. By capitalizing on the deeper relationships built in a small school environment, we are able to strike a balance between support and challenge. The ability to use these skills effectively will set students apart as they move through college and life to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Upon entering the Upper School, the Advisory Program matches each student with his or her own advisor. This advisor supports that student through graduation to help lead the way through the complexities and unique challenges he or she may face during the important years before college.
