Our 37-Acre Campus

Steward is built for academics, the arts, and athletics.

Located in Richmond, Virginia on 37 acres, The Steward School has a stunning campus that includes five academic buildings including the Bryan Innovation Lab, a $10 million Center for the Arts, a world-class athletic center, three athletic fields, a state-of-the-art baseball stadium, and nine tennis courts.

The Steward School relocated to its current campus at Gayton and Ryandale Roads in January 1973 from its humble beginnings in a church basement. The original structure, Dixon Hall, included classrooms, a library, a multipurpose room, and administrative offices and is now home to the Lower School.

In 1974, a small two-room structure was built to house arts and science. Additions in 1982, 1988, and 2008 expanded the structure, resulting in the Middle School building as it is today.

G. Thomas Taylor Hall was completed in 1993 to serve as the math/science building, followed by Cosby Hall, a major addition to Taylor Hall, in 1999. Taylor and Cosby Halls now house the Upper School, which was renovated and expanded again in 2009 as a part of the capital campaign, Building a Legacy. One Steward at a Time.

The original gymnasium, built in 1977, was torn down after the completion of the current Athletic Center during the summer of 2000.

The Paul R. Cramer Center for the Arts opened in the fall of 2002, establishing a dramatic focal point for The Steward School’s rapidly growing campus. Completed in the same year, Wilton Hall includes administrative offices, a boardroom, a technology lab, and the Middle and Upper School Library.

The private school’s most recent addition, the Bryan Innovation Lab, is a 21st-century, problem-solving environment located on the southwest corner of the campus. Since opening its doors in 2013, this cutting-edge facility has allowed teachers to cultivate a range of talents, abilities, and skills in students through experiential learning. By interacting with the building and utilizing its grounds, students grapple with real-world issues that challenge their critical thinking and resourcefulness, building the skills necessary to succeed—and lead—in our rapidly changing world.
