About Us

Our 100% tuition free K-6 campus in the Cleveland Central Neighborhood emphasizes academic expectations that promote a sense of worth, personal responsibility, civic engagement, and a “no excuse - every child can succeed” attitude.

Stepstone Academy has the “whole child” “whole family” “whole community” mindset. We are changing more than just the narrative around urban education. Stepstone Academy is Changing Lives.

Stepstone 360° is a comprehensive network of supports and partnerships that provide our students and their families’ accessibility to services and resources to reduce barriers to success.

Our Mission

Stepstone Academy will build a collaborative culture uniting staff, families, and community partners to provide pathways for growth, academic excellence and lifelong success for those we serve.

Our Vision

Our vision is to serve the diverse neighborhoods of Greater Cleveland by developing scholars who are of strong character to become independent, contributing members of their communities.
