About

Offering the best of the Catholic and independent school traditions, St.Sebastian’s School serves 375 boys in grades 7–12 in an inclusive community of academic rigor and spiritual depth. The order of the day at St.Sebastian’s is to love God, work hard, and take good care of one another. Every boy is known, loved, and called to greatness by dedicated teachers. An extraordinarily small average class size of 10 calls students to pursue excellence in every discipline within the school’s structured liberal arts curriculum, while exceptional Writing and Chapel Speaking programs empower students intellectually and spiritually. St.Sebastian’s commitment to diversity of all kinds and its need-based fi nancial aid attract bright, promising boys from many communities and backgrounds. Graduates leave prepared for and excited about the challenges they will face in college and beyond.

Teaching Philosophy

St. Sebastian’s entire liberal arts curriculum is centered on meeting the needs of the individual student. In small, intimate settings — an average class size of 10 — extraordinarily talented, devoted educators challenge bright, promising students to throw their hearts and souls into the learning process. The unusually small classes stimulate honest discussion, allow for individual attention, and foster the pursuit of truth.

Mission Statement

A Catholic independent school, St. Sebastian’s seeks to engage young men in the pursuit of truth through faith and reason. By embracing Gospel values in an inclusive, nurturing community and by inspiring intellectual excellence in a structured liberal arts curriculum, St. Sebastian’s strives to empower students for success in college and in life.

The ideal St. Sebastian’s graduate will be a moral and just person, a gentleman of courage, honor, and wisdom, a life-long learner who continues to grow in his capacity to know, to love, and to serve God and neighbor.
