Expanding Boarding

Objective 1 

Increasing the number of boarders

St. Stephen’s has a current ratio of day to boarding students of about 5:1 within a total student population of about 300 (circa 252-day students vs. 48 boarders).

Under this Plan, the number of boarders will increase to 75-80.

● An average of six boarders will be added to the student rolls each year over the life of the Plan.

● Boarders will represent a more significant percentage of students, reducing the ratio to about 3:1, though the student population will remain at 300.

● As the size of the boarding program increases, we reasonably expect that more students (and their families) will find St. Stephen’s an increasingly appealing boarding option. (Additional facilities to accommodate this boarder increase is addressed in Objective 3 below.)
