Everyone has a story to tell. Stories define who we are, who we want to be, where we’ve come from—stories give life to alternative places, visions, and dreams. St. Stephen’s Fine Arts Program is built around magnifying the voices of our young storytellers. Through music, drawing, photography, painting, sculpture, and theater, St. Stephen’s students are provided an opportunity to create and re-present their visions. Our Fine Arts Program is fully integrated with the core curriculum and our students are provided creative outlets to express what they are learning in history, math, literature, and science.
