Overview

Steward is a residential school for high achieving 6-9th graders located in coastal Connecticut. Our rigorous, thematic curriculum aligns with traditional courses while particularly focusing on hands-on environmental science and ethics. Students spend four weeks of each semester on outdoor adventure expeditions.

Steward offers a unique opportunity for high achieving middle school students to learn and live away from their regular school for a semester or a year.
