Glade Run Lutheran Services is proud to offer a satellite school located in Mercer County, St. Stephen’s Academy North. This facility provides the excellence and innovation currently offered at our school in Zelienople.

St. Stephen’s Lutheran Academy North is dedicated to providing a positive, safe, and nurturing learning community. Every interaction with a student is considered an opportunity to help them learn, grow, and heal.

Our credentials speak to innovative, educational leadership; in 2014, St. Stephen’s Academy was recognized as a model school for the Pennsylvania School-Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports program. We also participate in the Sanctuary Model of trauma-informed care, as certified by the Sanctuary Institute at the Andrus Children’s Center.

Why Outside Placement?

St. Stephen’s Academy North enables students to succeed with extra intervention through a therapeutic approach. Students in our program typically impede the learning of other students in the traditional setting.

Classroom Description

Our classrooms begin with a ratio that makes it possible to provide extra intervention and instruction: first through eighth grade have one teacher and one teaching assistant per 12 students; and kindergarten has one teacher and teaching assistant per 8 students. Classroom instruction makes use of SMART boards, iPads, and laptops; our innovative technology aligns with a curriculum that adheres to common core standards.
