The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) engages students (grades 7-12) in hands-on experiences in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) career fields as well as those that require pre-licensure. Students participate in a number of STEM educational programs and activities throughout the school year and the summer. Programs and activities are offered through the Saturday Scholars Academy and the Summer Scholars Academy. The Saturday Scholars Academy includes weekend and afterschool programs on Hofstra University's campus. Parents of STEP participants are encouraged to join the Parent Involvement in Education (PIE) program, to help facilitate student success through supportive parent committees.
