When I look at the accomplishments
on the timeline on the previous pages,
I am humbled by all of the work that
the Scholars, their families, and the staff
have done, grateful for every bit of advice
and support I’ve gotten along the way,
and inspired to make the next 20 years
even better.
In 1990, the faculty consisted of
John Simon and myself, and there were
14 Scholars in the pilot class. Now,
The Steppingstone Academy serves more
than 1,400 Scholars in Boston, we have
affiliates serving several hundred Scholars
in Philadelphia and Hartford, and we’ve
launched the National Partnership for
Educational Access, whose member
organizations collectively serve more
than 100,000 underserved students across
the country. Just last July, we launched
the College Success Academy, which has
the potential to help countless public
school students in Boston and beyond.
Our growth has outpaced our wildest
ambitions, but only because we’ve received
more support than we could ever have
Behind each notch on the timeline
lie innumerable stories. These tales include
the heroic work of Scholars, the heartfelt
generosity of donors, and the perseverance
and patience of mentors. Every day, for
two decades, a myriad of people have
quietly but purposefully committed
themselves to the vision that with proper
preparation and support, and a lot of hard
work, any student can go to college and
While the 20-year mark is a good
time to reflect and give thanks for all
that has happened so far, we are as
passionate as ever to find new ways to help
those students who have the will to earn
educational opportunities that lead to a
four-year college degree. We are particularly excited to be in a position to offer
Steppingstone’s academic and support
services to more underserved students in
the Boston Public Schools.
At every milestone, know that I am
acutely aware and grateful that none of
what we have accomplished would be
possible without your support. I can’t wait
for us to start filling in the next timeline.
Michael P. Danziger

The Steppingstone Foundation
Letter from the Founder
While it is impossible to capture
Steppingstone’s first 20 years of life on a
few pages, the timeline in the preceding
pages features some of its most celebrated
accomplishments. By tracing these
highlights, you will note the rise in the
number of Boston students Steppingstone
has been able to serve, the building of
affiliate programs in Hartford and
Philadelphia, and the launch of the
National Partnership for Educational
Access (NPEA) which supports programs
dedicated to college access for underserved
students. The ink is not even dry on the
last timeline entry reflecting the creation
of the College Success Academy in
Boston last July.
None of this progress could have
occurred without your critical support.
Your steadfast belief in Steppingstone’s
mission has enabled the Board to chart
Steppingstone’s course for the future.
Steppingstone Scholars have had great
success graduating from four-year colleges,
and as larger classes come through the
program, we want to ensure that future
Scholars have the same opportunity.
As a result of last year’s strategic plan,
Steppingstone has restructured The
Steppingstone Academy’s support services
component to include college services,
ensuring that Scholars transition successfully to college and earn a degree. Services
include summer bridge workshops,
on-going financial aid advising, and
College Coaches, a program matching
Scholars in their first year of college with
older Scholars attending their school. We
are also bringing NPEA member programs
together regionally to collaborate, share
best practices, and create a college pipeline
within their communities, beginning in
Perhaps Steppingstone’s most notable
recent expansion is the launch of a new
initiative, based in the Boston Public
Schools, called the College Success Academy.
Last July, Mayor Menino helped kick-off
the program, as the inaugural 46 Scholars
buckled down to start their collegebound
journey. I give those diligent rising fifthgraders tremendous credit, but I also
give you a heartfelt thank you. These
Scholars will spend five summers and
four academic years after school in classes,
fortifying what they learn in their regular
Boston Public School curriculum, while
benefiting from the Steppingstone culture
of hard work, high expectations, and high
achievement. Once these Scholars are in
their Boston public high schools, they will
receive the same quality college counseling
and financial aid assistance, college tours,
and socio-emotional support that the
Scholars from The Steppingstone Academy receive. We quite literally couldn’t
provide them with this path to college
without you.
On behalf of the 1,400 Steppingstone
Scholars headed back to school, ranging
from a fifth-grade classroom in Brighton
to a college senior seminar in Cambridge,
thank you for your generous support.

Since 1990, The Steppingstone Foundation
has successfully prepared hundreds of
underserved schoolchildren for educational
opportunities that lead to college
success. Year after year, the Scholars’
accomplishments show that with the right
combination of high expectations and
meaningful support, children who are
willing to work hard can reach their
potential and make their college aspirations
a reality, regardless of circumstance.
Steppingstone programs in Boston,
Philadelphia, and Hartford set underserved students on the path to college by
preparing them to get into and succeed
at top college-preparatory schools in
middle and high school. Once admitted,
Scholars participate in an intensive course
of academic preparation that begins with
a six-week summer session, continues
during the school year with classes after
school and on Saturdays, and concludes
with a second summer session. Scholars
preparing for ninth-grade placement have
a longer academic program. The rigorous
curriculum prepares Scholars for the
challenges of getting into and excelling at
top independent and public exam schools.
Steppingstone also works closely with
Scholars and their families on all aspects of
the independent and public exam school
admissions process, from choosing the
right school, to applying for financial
aid. But Steppingstone doesn’t end there.
Steppingstone makes a long-term
commitment to Scholars, providing a
comprehensive slate of support services
during middle school, high school, and
college to ensure that they thrive in their
new schools, ultimately graduating from
high school and four-year colleges.
The Steppingstone Academy in
Boston prepares fifth-, sixth-, and seventhgrade students to get into and succeed
at Boston’s top independent and public
exam schools in the sixth, seventh, and
ninth grades, respectively. In 2010, The
Steppingstone Academy served more than
1,000 Scholars in grades five through 12
and 300 Alumni Scholars in college. Of
the Scholars who complete the academic
component, 90% gain admission to an
independent or public exam school, 99%
graduate from high school, and 91%
enroll at four-year colleges. 80% of the
Scholars who enrolled at four-year colleges
earned a degree within six years.
Since its inception in 1997, The
Steppingstone Scholars Program in
Philadelphia has prepared more than
350 underserved fifth-grade students for
admission to selective independent schools
in the sixth grade. In 2010, the program
achieved a significant milestone when the
first Scholars from the pilot class graduated from college.
Since 2005, The Steppingstone
Academy Hartford has prepared highly
motivated Hartford students for admission
to Connecticut’s top independent
schools in the ninth grade. In 2010,
The Steppingstone Academy Hartford
provided academic preparation to 47
rising seventh-, eighth-, and ninth-grade
students, serving more than 100 Scholars
in grades seven through 10. In addition,
100% of the Scholars who completed the
academic preparation component are on
track to graduate from high school.
Created in 2007, the National
Partnership for Educational Access
(NPEA) is a membership association
for programs committed to increasing
educational opportunities for motivated
underserved students across the United
States. NPEA currently has more than
180 members, representing 29 states and
collectively serving more than 100,000
students across the country. NPEA is
dedicated to promoting quality, success,
and growth among member organizations,
partner schools, and communities committed to educational access. Members
include school and non-school based
programs, charter schools, independent
schools, higher education institutions,
and other nonprofit programs.
In the fall of 2010, Steppingstone
began recruiting the first Scholars to
participate in its newest initiative, the
College Success Academy, based in the
Edison and Jackson/Mann K8 Schools
in Brighton. Modeled after the academic
preparation and support services
components of The Steppingstone
Academy, the College Success Academy
provides middle-grade students in Boston
public schools with a rigorous after-school
and summer academic program spanning
five years, followed by support services
through high school and college. The
pilot class of 46 Scholars began its first
summer session in July 2011.

Summer Opportunities Fund
There are many summer programs that
provide students with experience or academic
skills that encourage them to grow outside
of the classroom, as well as help them stand
out from the college applicant pool. In 2006,
The Steppingstone Foundation created the
Summer Opportunities Fund to provide
Scholars with the financial assistance they
need to participate in such summer programs. In 2010, Scholars took part in the following programs:
