History

Stevenson. It is hard to capture in words, but we’ve chosen a few: Wooded, Surprising, Scholastic, Adventurous, Companionable, Hardworking, Eclectic, Respectful, and Forward-looking. Founded in 1952 as the Del Monte School for Boys, Stevenson School was renamed in 1954 to honor the author Robert Louis Stevenson, who lived in nearby Monterey toward the end of the nineteenth century. The School became coeducational in 1976.

Considering Financial Aid?

Schools administer their financial aid individually. The keys to seeking financial aid are:

  1. Planning, including dedicating time to sit-down and work through the paperwork and process
  2. Communicating with the admission and financial aid officers at the school
  3. Completing the paperwork and forms early and accurately (forms and paperwork can differ between schools)
  4. Meeting the financial aid deadline (it's early).
