Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP)

The STEP program at the College of Staten Island (CSI) focuses on helping students to build self-esteem and develop positive behaviors toward learning. A Saturday enrichment and academic program, STEP services students from Staten Island and Brooklyn in grades 7 through 12 who demonstrate a career interest in the fields of science, engineering, technology or education. Through the program, students come to CSI and engage in science, computer math, communication arts, and PSAT and SAT prep with an interdisciplinary learning approach. The STEP program also encourages students to strive for good grades throughout their secondary school years so that they eventually have the experience to choose from a broader range of choices when pursuing a career.

Participation in the STEP program is free. The only cost is student commitment and parental involvement.
