Meet Our Alumni

Stephen Spencer (far right) enrolled in his first class at the Eliot School as a young child and continued taking classes through his teenage years in Woodworking and Visual Arts. Assisting Eliot School classes as a Teen Aide during our Summer Program was Stephen’s first job.

Stephen attended high school at Boston Latin Academy and his art practice is flourishing to this day. While continuing to sketch daily, Stephen is gravitating toward studying graphic design, videography and animation as he heads toward college.
