Founded in 1952, Stevenson School is a selective coeducational boarding and day school with
750 students and 30 buildings on 50 acres of land and two campuses. The 500-student upper
division, comprised of grades 9-12, is located on the Pebble Beach Campus, where about 60% of
students reside in six faculty-supervised dormitories; the lower and middle divisions, totaling
250 students in grades PK-8, are located on the Carmel Campus.
As an American school with a global sensibility, Stevenson is premised on a vision of education
as the means by which we discover the world and contribute to its transformation. We believe
that one’s education is best pursued in the company of others, for others’ benefit as well as one’s
own. Our Latin motto— Suaviter in modo, fortiter in re (Gentle in manner, resolute in
action)—inspires humility and perseverance. Our mission includes three aims: to prepare
students for success in college and beyond, to foster their passion for learning and achievement,
and to help them shape a joyful life .
