Nominate a Student

Nominations are a way for teachers, principals, and other community members to identify motivated students who would benefit from Steppingstone’s intensive academic programs. Only students who will be in fourth or fifth grade this fall can be nominated. Students must also be Boston residents.

Once a nomination is received, Steppingstone will send the student and his or her family an information packet and an invitation to one of our Family Information Meetings (held from October-December). All nominees will also receive an application for admission in the fall. Nominated students are encouraged, but not required, to apply to Steppingstone.  A nomination does not guarantee acceptance.

Up to three students may be submitted online at a time–if you would like to nominate more than three students online, please refresh the page after you submit. A downloadable Nomination Form is also available. Nominations for 2018 will be accepted through early November (via mail, fax, or online form). If you have questions about The Steppingstone Academy, please call Elena Jay, Steppingstone Admission Assistant, at 617-423-6300 ext. 233. If you have questions about the College Success Academy, please call Claire Geruson, CSA Program Associate, at 617-423-6300 ext. 276.

If you are a student, or parent or guardian of a student, who is interested in our program, visit our apply page.
