  • Every gift makes a difference

    We need you!
It is difficult to imagine what The Steward School would look like without the generous financial contributions that many have made throughout the years. What once existed as only a single building has now become a complete and beautiful campus, but it is what lies within the buildings that makes The Steward School so special. Steward is committed to remaining small, no matter the size of the campus. For our students, this means small class sizes and personalized attention. To fulfill this commitment, we rely on additional sources of revenue.

Ways to Give

Susan Cramer Twining '84 (Mother of Abbey ‘13 and Mason ‘18)

"Steward gave me, and now gives my children, what very few places can give: an opportunity to explore and pursue a wide variety of academic and extracurricular activities in a safe and supportive environment. I support Steward because it is a treasure to me and to this amazing city."
