Striving Toward Educational Possibilities

April 20, 2018

During the STEP program, students experience a day of college explorations, visit a college class, have fun with our exploration sessions, and attend workshops related to college readiness and academic success. (Grades 6–8)


  • An important focus of STEP is encouraging parents/guardians to get involved in a significant way in their child's educational goals.
  • Parents/guardians of STEP participants are invited to attend the parent conference on Friday evening, where they may attend two sessions to better prepare their students to be college-ready.
