Use the MenuPosition option at the notebook level for the stylesheet. Mathematica sorts the stylesheet menu by the numerical values of the stylesheets' MenuPosition option, then alphabetically where equivalent values are used. Built-in stylesheets will have a MenuPosition in the 1000-2000 range,so choosing a value below 1000 will always get your stylesheet before the built-in ones, if that's what you want (that information also applies for MenuPosition as used for individual named styles, as well).
