What Is Veracross?

Veracross is our school information management system, and as such the best place for you to find information related to calendars and events, your student's schedule and grades, and even contact information for other School families.

While the website has a good deal of information about our School community for the general public, Veracross will always have the most specific information for each School family.

You can access your Veracross Parent Portal online at any time one you have access, typically granted in August to new families. Please consider bookmarking the link, or using the button found at www.stab.org/parents. On a mobile device, visit https://portals.veracross.com/stab/login and save the page (methods will differ depending on device and/or provider). New families will receive login credentials in late summer.

For more information on navigating Veracross, view our quick tutorial (PDF).

How Do I Start Learning School Acronyms?

We have a few favorite acronyms here that might take some getting used to, so we've also made an Alphabet Soup webpage to help get you started with decoding a few of these.

How Can I Support the School?

The experiences our students enjoy would not be possible without the dedicated support of parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, and friends who make yearly contributions to the School. Though there are many ways to give to the School, the following are the School's current top initiatives.

Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is the School's most important philanthropic priority.

DuVal Society
Donors who make a yearly gift of $2,000 or more, therefore taking a leadership role in philanthropy at the School.

Malone Society
Alumni who make a cumulative gift of $1,000 or more.

Raise We Our Voices
A $10 million initiative to make a School education more accessible to every deserving student and preserve the quality and vitality of the classroom experience.
