A Sterne education is a unique investment among independent schools.  Our highly-tailored curriculum, coupled with unparalleled wrap-around support for students’ unique academic and social-emotional needs, ensures that students have all the resources they need, right here on campus. 

Because we believe so strongly in our mission and values, we do all we can to make the full Sterne experience available to students across the socioeconomic spectrum.  Every year, our Board renews its commitment to Tuition Assistance as a fundraising priority; roughly 30% of families receive some form of aid annually.  Our Tuition Assistance Program includes both yearly tuition and non-tuition expenses, including after school athletics and annual local, national, and international trips.

We are so pleased with our decision to have our son continue on to high school at Sterne.We looked at some other high schools just to be sure neither he nor we felt he was missing out. What we saw convinced us that Sterne was going to provide our guy with challenging academics delivered in an atmosphere of understanding and support. For our son, Sterne continues to be the whole package.
