The Archdiocese of Louisville, in covenant with parents, provides a Christ-centered education that prepares all students for an ever-changing world. This education cultivates a learning environment that includes the21st century skills of critical thinking, communication,collaboration, and creativity

St. Stephen Martyr uses the Archdiocesan Curriculum Guidelines to plan programs and assessments. The Archdiocese also requires the use of Language Arts and Math portfolios. A portfolio is a purposeful selection of student work that exhibits a student's effort and achievements over time.
St. Stephen Martyr is a collaborative model school.
