About The Steward School
The Steward School's mission begins with "to prepare each child for college and for life." Critical to this endeavor are the faculty and staff members of our private school. Our core character values are honor, responsibility, and achievement, balanced by caring and respect for oneself and for others. Our faculty and staff are much more than mere representations of these values—they are the designers, sculptors, and builders that frame our students’ educational goals with these values in mind.
The Steward School is committed to diversity and the development of an educational environment that fosters mutual respect, responsibility, and empathy in our school and in life. We value the presence of individuals whose differences include, but are not limited to, age, ethnicity, gender, learning style, talents, physical ability, political views, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and family structure. We actively encourage applications from candidates with broad and diverse backgrounds and from individuals of all races, nationalities, and beliefs.
