- To provide its participants with a creative and innovative learning experience.
- To expose parents to various workshops that will assist them in taking an active role in their children's academic lives.
Students participating in Baruch College's STEP Academy program are highly motivated to learn more about math and science and come from many different middle and high schools in the New York City region.
The Science and Technology Entry Program is funded by a grant from the New York State Education Department, Office of K-16 Initiatives and Access Programs.
