ABOUT US

Steppingstone Scholars was established in 1999 and has been providing academic enrichment programs and supports to not only their Scholars, but also families of the Scholars and the schools they attend. Steppingstone’s programs focus on serving students ages 10-24, in order to help them be successful in middle and high school, and now through college. Steppingstone has seen tremendous success from its programs: 100% of Scholars from the Class of 2013 and 2014 graduated from high school, compared to the 64% graduation rate for the School District of Philadelphia; 75% of these Scholars are attending colleges and universities rated Very, Highly, and Most Competitive according to Barron’s.
