路 . mission statement The Steward School's Mission is to prepare each child for college and for life. Our core character values are honor, responsibility, and achievement, balanced by caring and respect for one's self and for others. Steward is committed to small classes and to small overall size, which allow for discovery and development of each student's unique talents and passions, while providing more opportunities for individual participation. We believe an environment with a diversity of talents, abilities, cultures, and backgrounds provides the richest and most fully rounded educational experience.

LETTER FROM THE HEADMASTER At this time in our chool's histo ry, noth ing co uld be more fi tting than focusing on Paul Cramer. For starters, this will be the year we are evaluated for re-accreditation by the Virginia Association oflnd ependent Schools (VAlS) and the year we will officially la unch a major capital ca mpaign to strengthen our endowment and make the first significant improve ments to our campus since 2003.

Paul Cramer was a master at growing self confident children and in guiding their parents and his faculty toward doing jus t enough to support, but not too much so

The first step in the VAlS process will be to examine a "document box." Quite literally they will read everything we say about ourselves, from the Mission Statement and Educational Philosop hy to the current Strategic Plan, Vision 2011, to curri culum gu ides . They will examine school composition-who the stude nts are, how we admit them, and where they go after they grad uate; the school's resources-whether they are adeq uate to accomplish our goals ; and the trustees, parents, and alumni-whether they are informed and supportive . In my very first conversa tion with Paul , I as ked him ro describe the single most important aspec t of a Steward education. His answer was clear and unhesitaring: growing self-confident children. Children who through a se ries of age-appropriate challenges in th e classroom, on the stage, in the arts stu dio, in their service to others, or on the playing field, encounter problems to solve-<Jnes that stretch them just enough; ones that are worthy of their sustained attention and sincere engage ment; ones that demand cre ativ ity, resourcefulne s, resilience, patience, and persistence. Paul knew that self-confidence cannot be bestowed upon children by their parents or their station in life; it can only be ea rned through each child's efforts. Parents, teachers, adv isers, and coaches need to be parmers and allies, not adversa ries, in constructing those challenges and in gu iding children's effortS. Paul Cramer was a master at growing self-confident children and in guiding their parents and his faCldty towa rd doing just enough ro support, but not too much so as to enable. VAIS will be here to determine to what extent the school is still dedicated to accomp lishing this mis ion and to creating the reso urces necessaty to include, challenge, and support stud ents, one by one-each with a range of talents, energies, interests, and abilities-in academics, the arts, athleti cs, character, and service. Together, T kn ow that we can continue ro fulfill this mission, each day, in all that we do for ourselves, for each other, for our community, and for the world in whi ch we live.

as to enable. Ken Seward


Paul Cramer touched hundreds of lives during his time as Headmaster of The Steward School. And before. And after. Inside the halls of the School and outside its walls. His legacy can be characterized in any number of ways-as a dedicated educator; an inspiring leader; a staunch believer in doing the right thing; a humanitarian; a supporter of the arts; a lover of athletics; and a proud, loving father, husband, and grandfather. Each person who had the privilege of knowing Mr. Cramer celebrates his memory, his life, and his legacy for his or her own reason. I was fortunate to meet him just once, in my office. I celebrate Paul Cramer for the time he took to get to know me, to ask me questions, to offer me congratulations for the impact I was having at the school- an impact I had considered small, but one that he made clear he celebrated for me. He left my office, and I felt a little bit prouder. I felt I was making a difference. From what I hear, he had that impact on lots of folks. Why do you celebrate Paul Cramer? Let us all remember to do so as we remember him .


He was a wonderful leader and mentor. - From A, Scott Moncure '84, alumnus and Director of Admissions

............................................................ Paul would walk outside of the doors where the playground was, and every time he walked out, 10 or so kids would run to him, grab his legs, and hug him. He'd stand there and say, "Good morning," and "Hello, there," and ask how they were-and he knew each child's name. The kids just loved him. He'd make a point to notice the details [at a performance or a game] and then be sure to thank faculty and students for our work, mentioning the specific things he noticed. He made everyone feel special.

I celebrate Paul Cramer for a whole host of reasons. For starters, Paul reali zed how important Steward was for this community, even though the community, and many parents whose children have benefited immensely, failed to appreciate how unique and incredibly ambitious The Steward School's mission was and continues to be. Paul was about bringing out the best in every child, seemingly undistracted by any baggage or peer pressure. He once wrote me saying, "Wit h my educational background, I was geared, programmed, what-have-you, to the elite-type schools. For some reason, I came to rea lize that t hose of us who had the benefit of such good education shou ld take 'it ' to another clientele rather than keep it in a narrow band of people already 'blessed.' Noblesse Oblige, I thin k they called it." Paul dedicated his life to others. He left th is world a much better place fo r all his wisdom, his perseverance, his genu ine warmth, and his love fo r children, Heaven's a better place for his being there. I feel blessed to have known Paul and will miss him immensely. - From Ferd 8aruch, friend and forme r chairman of the Board of Trustee

One thing that stands out for me was Paul's concern for all of the kids here. Whether they were struggling or doing well-anything-it didn't make a difference.

Favorite hobby: Reading (favorite book: The Sun Also Rises, by Hemingway) When not holding a bat you may find him: Playing video games (favorites: Madden and NBA2K) Coach Bruce Secrest has known Cameron Scales since he was in the womb . No, really. He hasn't just coached Cameron since he was "this high "-Bruce is Cameron's uncle. Now Bruce is one proud uncle and coach, as Cameron just signed his National Letter of Intent with Elon University in North Carolina-the first baseball player in the young Steward program to be recruited by and move on to a collegiate program. Cameron credits Steward for his steady improvement through the years . "From the time I was a freshman, I was able to compete at the Varsity level," he explains, "so I had to always strive to improve and to keep up." He feels prepared for college on and off the playing field, explaining that "Steward has exposed me to a broad range of opinions, ideas , and ways of looking at things." Cameron speaks of literature, baseball, and video games with equal knowledge and excitement, but his "renaissance man" qualities don't surprise Uncle ... I mean, Coach Bruce. "He's a great player and has great baseball intelligence. But I'm going to miss his character just as much . He's steady as rain ; the kind of guy who makes others around him better." Is that what he'll contrib ute at Elon? "Definitely," Secrest nods, "He' ll give all that and more."

The Upper School has a few new team members. Two of the three are in their first year here at Steward-Dan Frank is the US's new Head and George Bland is the new Dean of Students. Ali Thompson is in her second year, currently as the Dean of Student Life. Among their various other responsibilities large and small, these administrators are leading the charge to enhance the "character" component of Upper School students' education. "They are bringing all of their experiences together, and we are benefitting from a rich mix of people with experience in other schools," says Headmaster Ken Seward. Combined, the three have more than 50 yea rs of teaching experience and bring different coach ing, theoretical, experiential, international travel, and independent and pub lic school education perspectives. They are working with t he ir Upper School teammates to broaden current programs and introduce in it iatives designed to prepare US students for next steps beyond Steward. One such initiative, led by Thompson, involves introducing students to relevant and t imely news topics , debates, and political issues through a series of special guest speakers. This fall , for instance, Upper School st udents participated in a panel on gun control laws and safety in the wake of the Virginia Tech tragedy, during wh ich a panel comprising state senators answered student-generated questions. "We place a strong emphasis on developing our students into active membe rs of their communities," explains Thompson. Judge Dennis Soden, of the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Courts in Henrico County, was the speaker for the Honor Code signing; and Grady Wilson Powell, a well-known educator and minister, will join us as our Martin luther King , Jr., Day speaker. "They accomplished more in the first summer than I thought they would in the first year," said Seward earlier th is year, reflecting on the team 's arrival. luckily for the Upper School students, much more is undoubtedly ahead.
