100_0761We believe that all children deserve an opportunity to attend preschool. Step Ahead has provided scholarships to many families every year since its inception in 1997.

Our school is committed to raising money to support our scholarship program. The donations of individual families, local community groups, and annual school-wide fundraisers support our scholarship program. Each and every dollar raised from our various fundraisers and individual donations is deposited directly into our scholarship fund. We use as many avenues as possible to achieve our goals: Yankee Candle fundraisers, Uno Chicago Grill nights, school photographs, Target Give Back program, Genevieve’s fundraisers, and recycled clothing proceeds.

Our scholarship program is non-discriminatory and based upon the philosophy of providing tuition assistance to as many families as possible through partial scholarships. The goal of our scholarship program is to continue to make a difference in the lives of children.

The Scholarship Board Committee awards available money based on family need. Any registered family may request a scholarship assistance application. These applications are due to the Step Ahead Office by May 1.
