MIDDLE GRADES ACADEMY

MGA is a foundational component of a set of interconnected interventions around student academic performance, school climate, and school staff professional development. A significant part of the education crisis in Philadelphia is the lack of a true investment in the school based college pipeline. In response to this crisis, Steppingstone Scholars' Middle Grades Academy uses our 16 years of experience in delivering high quality college preparatory enrichment and mentoring programs to invest in neighborhood schools during the critical years between early education and high school. In partnership with the School District of Philadelphia, partner schools, community, and University partners. Steppingstone is implementing programming in three key areas that will contribute to a schoolwide college-going and success culture.

"I like that we do different projects and that we learn in a fun way. You get to choose your own science project sometimes. I like how the teachers actually give us a chance to be better. They let us earn things like snacks and meeting the president [of Steppingstone]."
