How St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School is empowering middle schoolers to be their best through a student-led, positive approach to social media, tech, & well-being

St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School (SSSAS) is a college preparatory Episcopal School in the Diocese of Virginia that educates students from ages 3 through grade 12. SSSAS serves students from across Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

The school’s curriculum fosters an appreciation for the diversity and interconnectedness of the human experience by challenging students to ask more questions, give consideration to other points of view, and never settle for the easy answer. This case study explores how the middle school at SSSAS uses #WinAtSocial to foster connection and strengthen its school community.
