STEP York front


The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) is a New York State Education Department (NYSED) grant funded initiative designed to increase the number of historically underrepresented or economically disadvantaged junior high and high school students prepared to enter college, and improve their participation rate in mathematics, science, technology, health-related fields, and the licensed professions.
 
At York College, we are dedicated to providing quality support and services for highly motivated students in grades 7-12 in the community who wants to pursue their education or career in STEM fields.

STEP’s Purpose

To increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students prepared to enter college, and improve their participation rate in mathematics, science, technology, health-related fields, and the licensed professions.

Why YC STEP?

York facilitates a highly active campus community that is as rich as it is diverse. The College has grown to more than 8,300 students from 120 countries of origin, speaking more than 83 native languages.
