St. Stephen’s Lutheran Academy

We are a licensed, private K-12 school dedicated to providing a positive, safe and nurturing learning community. St. Stephen’s operates in two Western Pennsylvania locations — Zelienople and Utica. School districts may refer students online by completing our online referral form. Parents interested in St. Stephen’s as an educational setting for their students may contact their home school district.

The students and staff of St. Stephen’s Academy collaborate using the framework of our Sanctuary certification, School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI), and the School as a Society model. Every interaction with a student is an opportunity to help them learn, grow and heal. Furthermore, St. Stephen’s Academy promotes growth through educational and therapeutic activities with an outdoor classroom, as well as utilizing the plants and animals at Glade Run Adventures.
