RIT K-12 administers the RIT Science & Technology Entry Program in collaboration with schools in the Rush Henrietta, Greece Central, and Rochester City School districts, and Vertus and Rochester Prep High Schools. Funded by the New York State Education Department (NYSED), RIT STEP serves more than 300 middle and high school youth each year.
The purpose of STEP is 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. Program services include: academic enrichment, tutoring, standardized test preparation, college and career readiness experiences, hands-on research opportunities, job and college shadow opportunities, science fairs, FIRST robotics, summer programs, mentoring, counseling, and more.
