“I see the remarkable difference Steps to Success has made for our students who reside in public housing. This innovative program is an example of how doors can be opened for students by doing business differently.” -William H. Lupini, Superintendent, Public Schools of Brookline
Steps to Success (STS) is a comprehensive achievement program for students from low-income families, most of whom live in Brookline’s public housing. Our goal is to make a “sea change” for all the young people in the population we serve. There are no academic filters. STS takes all comers, regardless of grade point average or motivation. Each year, STS serves approximately 300 young people in Grades 4-12 and, through our College Success Initiative (CSI), serve an additional 80 students in college or other post-secondary programs.
