Why Teach at Steppingstone?

“Scholars are fun and bright but they are coming from a city where college access isn’t a reality for all students. The opportunity to make this a reality for a wide range of kids is really phenomenal and super exciting.”

Laniesha Gray, Steppingstone Academy English Teacher and Steppingstone Class of 2000 Alumna
