Archbishop Stepinac High School
Ranked as one of the nation’s top 50 Catholic high schools, Archbishop Stepinac High School will showcase how its acclaimed academic and extracurricular programs shape young men for post-secondary success at its Fall Open House.
The all-boys school, located at 950 Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains, will host visitors October 15 from 2-4, and October 24 from 6-8.
Parents and potential students will have an opportunity to learn more about how Stepinac — grounded in Catholic values and traditions — has become the standard bearer for curriculum innovation, a reputation that began four years ago when the school developed the nation’s first-of-its-kind, all-digital textbook library.
The groundbreaking capability caught the attention of educators and digital learning experts from across the country and overseas. Among them was Daniel Williamson, Managing Director of OpenStax at Rice University, who, after visiting Stepinac, affirmed in his report: “Stepinac is truly a model for education in America.”
The digital textbook library became a key component of the school’s development of the personalized blended learning environment — an advanced learning platform that combines a digital curriculum with a talented faculty committed to academic excellence. Principal Paul Carty noted: “It not only improves learning but prepares our students to become globally competitive at the college level and beyond.”
Among the other notable Stepinac programs that will be showcased are the school’s Drama Club which this year won the top Metropolitan High School Award for best production for the regional premiere of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”; the unique Honors Academy, a three-year program that provides academically high achieving students with opportunities to pursue advanced studies in either engineering, health and science, finance and economics or law; the championship varsity sports teams, among a wide range of extracurricular programs and activities.
Members of Stepinac’s administration and faculty will be on hand to answer questions. Tours of the school's facilities will be led by Stepinac students.
