Bridging the Gap in the College Pipeline

We are widening the path to college and the workforce by reinventing how an education nonprofit can help children. Steppingstone builds a continuous inventive pipeline of success from elementary through college completion ensuring academic, college, career and personal success. Essential to that pipeline of services is a host of innovative partnerships with Temple, Drexel, University of Pennsylvania, Vetri Community Association, Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and many other institutions and nonprofits.

Over 17 years we have developed a strong track record of success in Philadelphia:

  • 100% of Scholars from the Class of 2016 graduated from high school, compared to the 64% graduation rate for the School District of Philadelphia.
  • 75% of these Scholars are attending colleges and universities rated Very, Highly, and Most Competitive according to Barron’s.
  • 86% of Scholars are on track or have graduated from 4 year colleges.
