Building STEPS propels Baltimore’s high achieving students to college and career success. Students are accepted from 15 partner high schools and begin programing in 11th grade. Eighty-seven percent of participating students identify as first-generation college students.
As a result of progressive programming that includes STEM exposure and immersion, college access and persistence workshops and ongoing support, nearly 80% of Building STEPS graduates earn a college degree.
