I agree to participate in the Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) sponsored by Le Moyne College. I understand that the purpose of the STEP program is to help me develop my academic skills and explore professional careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and Licensed professions. I also realize that other support services (SAT and Regents exam prep, advising, mentoring, job shadows, College Success Seminars and STEM Academy enrichment activities) will be offered to me.
I agree to maintain a
grade point average of 80 % in all of my Regents Math and Science courses and an overall grade point average of 80%
throughout my high school career. I also understand that the STEP program expects me to try to earn an
Advanced Regents Diploma.
I agree to take Regents-level Math and Science courses throughout my four years of high school to prepare myself to enter college and STEM-related or other licensed careers.
I will provide a copy of my grades, every marking period, to the Le Moyne College STEP program.
I agree to participate in
at least one monthly academic advising session
with STEP staff, to participate in
tutoring/mentoring two or more times per week
and to attend
College Success Seminars and/or STEM Academy activities two or more times a month.
I agree to
respect myself, my peers, and the STEP staff at all times.
In addition, I agree to arrive on time and dress appropriately for all STEP activities.
I understand that I can be put on probation or dismissed from the program for failing to maintain STEP academic requirements, for violating the STEP behavioral expectations or for not fulfilling STEP program obligations.
My signature and that of my parent/guardian constitute an agreement between us and the Le Moyne College Science and Technology Entry Program. I have read this document and understand my responsibilities.
