Step to College seeks to prepare high school scholars academically, socially and emotionally. Through the use of themes, scholars are exposed to character traits and behaviors necessary to achieve success during their freshman year of college. These themes provide continuity of the information shared by S2C stakeholders. Social activities, classroom collaborations, nightly lectures and interactions between S2C scholars and program stakeholders will provide the scholars with opportunities to practice the skills within each theme. Scholars will encounter a new them during each year of their S2C program.
