Steppingstone Scholars Middle Grades Academy STEAM Summer Program 2020
We are excited to bring back the Steppingstone Scholars Middle Grades Academy STEAM Summer Program for the 2020 summer session free of charge!
The program will take place on Temple University's campus. For students who live in West Philadelphia, a school bus will be provided to and from McMichael Elementary (3543 Fairmount Ave) to the site. For students who live in North Philadelphia, a walking group will walk to and from Duckrey Elementary (1501 W. Diamond St.) to the site.
This program will be taking place June 24 - August 6, 2020 from 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM daily. The program is for rising 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders (current 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders). All field trips are free and breakfast and lunch are included daily. .
Rising 8th graders who meet program requirements will earn a $200 stipend during the summer program. Rising 9th graders who meet program requirements will earn a $300 stipend during the summer program.
Historically, acceptance to the program is based on a math entrance exam. There will be no summer testing in March or April due to closures and what appears to be continuing closures of schools and buildings. We will still notify families of their child's acceptance or waitlist status by April 17th. If your child is a returning student with strong attendance last summer, you can expect to be accepted. If you have a new student, expect to do a phone interview and have a teacher complete a recommendation form. New students will be hearing from us in the weeks to come to set up interviews and recommendations.
We plan on having students take the test prior to the program start-date in order to better inform our curriculum. Details on that are forthcoming. Feel free to email us as
