Founded in 1952, Stevenson School is a selective co-educational boarding and day school with 750 students and 30 buildings on 50 acres of land and two campuses. The 500-student upper division, comprised of grades 9-12, is located on the Pebble Beach Campus, where about 60% of students reside in six faculty-supervised dormitories; the lower and middle divisions, totaling 250 students in grades PK-8, are located on the Carmel Campus.

As an American school with a global sensibility, Stevenson is premised on a vision of education as the means by which we discover ourselves in the world and thus contribute to its transformation. We believe that one’s education is best pursued in the company of others, for others’ benefit as well as one’s own. Our Latin motto—Suaviter in modo, fortiter in re (Gentle in manner, resolute in action)—inspires humility and perseverance. Our mission includes three aims: to prepare students for success in college and beyond, to foster their passion for learning and achievement, and to help them shape a joyful life.

In keeping with this project, Stevenson seeks to:

● Train students in critical academic, intellectual, social, and emotional skills;
● Help students to develop honor and integrity;
● Teach students to engage productively and peacefully with others;
● Nurture students’ ambitions and healthy pursuit of excellence;
● Balance convention and innovation such that we remain true to our enduring values and relevant to the emerging needs of the present generation of students.

We expect all members of our community to be:

● Devoted to our tenets of scholarship and citizenship;
● Honest, honorable, and empathetic;
● Able to examine and be responsible for their beliefs and behavior, respectful of the consequences that attend both;
● Willing to risk failure in the pursuit of wisdom;
● Committed to global literacy, environmental stewardship, and civic engagement.

Stevenson offers its students, faculty, and staff a values-driven community experience influenced by the distinctive beauty, ecological biodiversity, and contemplative culture of the Central Coast.
