Striving Toward Educational Possibilities

April 8-9, 2016

During the S.T.E.P. program, students experience two days of college explorations as they choose to stay on campus overnight or come back the next day, 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 to get involved in a significant way in their child's educational goals.
  • Parents of STEP participants are invited to attend on Saturday, April 9th the parent conference where they will take a campus tour, attend sessions such as College 101, Financial Aid and more!
  • Conference registration includes two complimentary tickets to the Saturday parent event.
