Discipleship

What joy it is to see our children walk in truth, but what a loss to us and our nation when they do not. StoneBridge Upper School students develop a deep understanding of who they are and how God’s Word relates to every aspect of life through rigorous academics and Christian mentoring centered on Truth. Our graduates are equipped to lead with conviction, prepared to engage their culture, and empowered to impact the nation for Christ.

Academics

Our 6th through 12th grade program is designed to build the character of Christ in each student through their own scholarship, service, stewardship, and statesmanship. More than half of our juniors and seniors are inducted into the National Honor Society each year, and SAT scores are consistently higher than the regional and national average. With 99% of SBS graduates attending college or university, SBS grads are consistently accepted to their top college choices–often including the most selective schools.

Approach

Our educational philosophy is rooted in God’s word and enables students to understand how it relates to every aspect of life and liberty. Students are empowered with an understanding of their individual value in Christ and their unique God-given purpose. They learn to reason from Biblical principles, to communicate persuasively, to serve their community, and lead with Christian character.

Partnering with Parents

image

When students enter our Upper School, parents transition from partnering with the teachers to partnering with their student’s mentor, who will track their academic, relational, and spiritual progress as they navigate middle and high school. Parents still have many opportunities to volunteer through helping with the Upper School retreat and chaperoning on the Washington, D.C. and Boston trips.

Extracurriculars

Developing Christian Leaders

StoneBridge extracurriculars focus on developing the whole person as future leaders of character who will have an impact in their communities and beyond. We offer electives in music, art, and drama to strengthen students’ skills, talents and individual creativity inspired by the Creator. Our athletics focuses on physical training and overcoming adversity through competition. Developing well-rounded Christian leaders through opportunities outside the classroom is a key component of the Upper School program.

“The Christian values we instilled in our children have been reinforced at StoneBridge, and my children have been extremely well prepared to defend their faith in college and in the workplace. The academics also rival other private schools and exceed those in many public schools.”
- Beth Ownley Cooper
SBS Alumni Parent
“StoneBridge certainly helped me solidify my beliefs and Biblical worldview, which has allowed me to be confident in who I am and how I conduct my life. I’m very grateful I had the school to help me establish the roots of my worldview and character.”
- Ashton Love
Class of 2012
“My teachers were so willing to come alongside me and mentor me. My teachers in every class, even in math class, have prepared me to think principally and to think critically and to be able to apply Scriptures to everyday scenarios.”
