About The Allen-Stevenson School

Elementary, Middle School

At Allen-Stevenson, our students are open to deeper learning and greater academic success because we nourish a boy’s heart and mind. With over 135 years of experience teaching boys in Kindergarten through 8th Grade, Allen-Stevenson uses the best insights and tools available to understand each boy as a whole person. Our visionary faculty challenges our students to take thoughtful risks academically, athletically and artistically. Our broad program helps us develop well rounded boys. We provide the daily structure and integrated resources to fuel each boy’s curiosity and connect learning across disciplines.

As a tight knit community, we know that boys benefit both academically and personally from living an examined life. We encourage boys to stretch their talents and to appreciate the energy, interests and perspectives that others bring. We prepare boys to be self-aware, compassionate and world ready and inspire in them a lifelong love of learning. As a result, Allen-Stevenson graduates are open-minded, grounded and more than ready to attend the best high school for the person they are becoming.

COVID-19 Admission Adjustments

How are you adjusting your admission process? We are conducting a mostly virtual process still. Interviews and student meetings/assessments will still be remote.

Are you conducting tours/open houses? We will be conducting virtual open houses and other opportunities for prospective families to get to know the Allen-Stevenson community. Our fall tours will be in-person but families will have the option of a virtual tour/chat if they choose.

Are both parents expected to attend tours/presentations? yes

What is expected of families? Families need to attend a tour and interview with a member of the Admissions team. Their son needs to attend a Kindergarten meet & greet (child visit) and complete the Thinking and Engagement assessment. We encourage families to attend some of the optional open house events to get to know Allen-Stevenson better.
