Welcome and thank you for your interest in St. Stephen Protomartyr School.

Since 1927, our school has been an anchor in the Holly Hills neighborhood, located in south St. Louis. Many of our current families are second and third generation St. Stephen Protomartyr alumni.  Many other families are just beginning the St. Stephen tradition.

We pride ourselves on providing a challenging, faith filled learning environment as well as a welcoming and diverse community.  Our experienced and caring teachers recognize the talents, gifts and needs of each student.  Also, a learning consultant, counselor and ESL tutor round out our excellent faculty. 

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori-based religious education program, has recently been added to our early childhood and primary grades, with plans to advance the program to the intermediate grades.

Our core curriculum and instruction reflect best practices as well as the latest technology.    Music, art, P.E., and Spanish are also taught from kindergarten to 8th grade.  Student electives in our upper grades include web design, advance math, and more.

Tablets are provided for the primary grades; students in the intermediate grades use laptops throughout their studies and our Middle School students use their own Chromebooks.  Our extracurricular activities, include Chess, Robotics, Bellarmine Speech, Choral Club, Drama, Girls on the Run, Scouts, CYC sports, Science Club and French Club. Junior Achievement, Dancing Classrooms and Science in a Tree enrich the learning experience.  

Our preschool is an important part of the SSP school and parish community.  Preschool teachers are certified and our early childhood curriculum emphasizes kindergarten preparation as well as social emotional development. Our preschool offers a flexible schedule to meet families’ needs, with part-time and half-day option.

I would love to introduce you to our wonderful community. The best way to discover all St. Stephen Protomartyr School has to offer is to set a time to tour our school.
