Overview of St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School
Located six miles from Washington, D.C., St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School, a JK-12 Episcopal School, educates the whole child by tending to the academic, social, physical, and spiritual needs of each of our students. Named as the #1 best workplace in Washington, D.C. by the Washington Post, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes is a positive and collegial community with a commitment to our mission to pursue goodness as well as knowledge and to honor the unique value of each of our members as a child of God in a caring community. SSSAS combines a rigorous academic program with outstanding opportunities in the arts, athletics and service learning for our students. SSSAS has a deep commitment to creating an inclusive community which values diversity and multiculturalism, and we seek candidates who have this same commitment. The diverse student body is 28% students of color, and 22% of our students receive financial aid to create a socioeconomically diverse community.   Our culture promotes lifelong learning, and our faculty members have a wealth of opportunities available to them to continue expanding their knowledge of both their disciplines and the field of education.  Summer study grants, a multicultural seminar for new faculty, support for graduate studies, and conferences and workshops are just a few of the ways in which we support and encourage our teachers to continue to grow and learn.
