Archbishop Stepinac High School has provided a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum, grounded in Roman Catholic values and traditions, for over 60 years. Until September 1, 2009 Stepinac was part of the Archdiocese of New York’s Catholic High School Association. In the fall of 2009 Stepinac was granted local autonomy and is governed by an independent school board of trustees. The all-boys’ school (grades 9-12) was founded in 1948, through the efforts of 48 Catholic parishes in Westchester County under the leadership of our Patron, Archbishop Francis Cardinal Spellman and named after Aloysius Cardinal Stepinac of Zagreb, Croatia.
Today, Archbishop Stepinac has approximately 750 students from Westchester, Bronx, Rockland, and Putnam Counties, as well as Connecticut. The curriculum includes honors classes in all subjects, and students take Advanced Placement in nineteen courses (beginning in freshman year).
The Mission of Archbishop Stepinac High School is to offer young men of the Archdiocese a highly competitive academic and extracurricular program that will prepare them for college and leadership roles. The faculty and staff accomplish these objectives by pursuing excellence and creating a supportive, disciplined atmosphere with a strong sense of camaraderie and Christian values that is unique to the Stepinac experience.
