St Stephen's College is a large secondary day and boarding school in Stanley with a mainly Chinese student body.

St Stephen's College is a Christian secondary school for boys aged 11 – 18 years that offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in parallel with the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE). The school attracts a significant number of international students, particularly from China.

The school’s spacious and historic campus has boarding facilities, as well as a TV studio; gymnasium; 50-metre swimming pool; football pitch; 400m athletic track; tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts; auditoriums; music rooms; art studios; and a college chapel.

This English-medium school is a Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) school, which means that it receives a subsidy from the government. The DSS scheme was introduced by the Education Bureau in 1991 to help improve the offering of private education in Hong Kong. DSS schools have the freedom to design their own curriculum and set their own school fees, but they must focus on offering a curriculum that targets local students and prepares them for local examinations.

As with all DSS schools, it has its own admissions policy rather than following the government’s Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) scheme, and its annual tuition fees are significantly lower than at other international schools (HKD 70,000 for Hong Kong residents, and fees are available on request for international students).
