Developing individual gifts.

“All human beings are born with unique gifts. The healthy functioning of our community depends on its capacity to develop each gift.” —Peter Senge

The STEP Program, originally housed at Dearborn Academy, is now a separate program of Schools for Children, and is located in Arlington, Mass. The 45-day assessment program provides high-quality stabilization and assessment for students who have had difficulty in their previous school setting. It is an example of our commitment to ensuring that children with learning differences or other challenges do not fall through the cracks.
