Welcome to your home away from home. Welcome to St. Stephen's Boarding in Rome, Italy!
Deciding whether boarding is the right choice for you is a personal and important decision. Boarding offers a unique experience that can be incredibly rewarding and transformative, but it may only be suitable for some. Here are some factors to consider when determining if boarding is the right fit for you:
Sixty boarders are housed in three locations around the School campus. All rooms have Wi-Fi access and communal facilities, and the dorms are separated from the rest of the school building by an access control system. The snack bar and lounge with TV and DVD are popular places for relaxation. Meals are taken in the dining hall, where the emphasis is on Italian cuisine. Students can use the library, sports, and music facilities in their free time or spend time in the cortile.
St. Stephen’s welcomes boarders from independent and international schools in the United States, Europe, Central and South America, Russia, and Asia each year. Students who wish to study abroad in Rome may join us in their sophomore, junior or senior year for a semester or year to enhance their knowledge and appreciation of Rome’s diverse historical and cultural offerings.
