I saw a poster in the Honan Library for The Steppingstone Foundation, and wanted to let people know about this great organization. The Steppingstone Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides free tutoring and admissions assistance for 4th, 5th, and 7th graders to help them improve their academic skills and gain admission to public exam schools and private schools. It also gives college counseling to students who have completed the program. Approximately 150 kids each year are accepted into the program and they take several hours of classes on afternoons and weekends during the school year and have a 6 week full-time session in the summer.
Deadline for applications for next year are February 1. Upcoming Family Information Meetings are being held on:
Tuesday, January 9, 2007: English High School, Jamaica Plain, 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, January 20, 2007: Boston College High School, Dorchester: 10:00 a.m.
