Nominate a Student

If you are a student or the parent or guardian of a student who is interested in our program, please visit this link.


Nominations are a way for teachers, principals, and other community members to identify motivated students who would benefit from Steppingstone’s intensive academic programs. Students apply to Steppingstone in fourth or fifth grade and 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. You can also download a hard copy of the formNominations 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 Chris Parris, Senior Director of CSA, at 617-423-6300 ext. 234.
