Program Components

Saturday Academies - STEP will meet at the New Paltz campus for seven Saturday educational sessions called Academies. There is a general session at each academy where a guest speaker presents a topic of general interest. Students are then divided by grade level and assigned to two modules of small-group instruction during the course of the day. Lunch and a light breakfast are provided onsite.

Tutoring - Local districts receive funding from STEP to provide group or individual reviews for standardized testing. Some districts receive additional funding to provide STEP participants with tutoring support in their regular coursework or to prepare for ongoing examinations.
