Testimonials from our Scholars

Joining STEP was probably the best decision. I slacked my freshman year and earned a 2.4 GPA. I joined the STEP program, and so many great things came out of that. I made a 3.6 GPA last semester, and my determination to keep improving has never been stronger. STEP was the key to changing my habits for the better. – Kenia M.
