College Steps


College Steps was founded by a clinical psychologist and a special educator with a simple mission: To empower students living with learning and social challenges through structured post-secondary support. Working closely with high schools, colleges and families, we emphasize peer-to-peer services that build confidence and success.

College Steps provides hands-on and personalized college support for students with learning and social challenges. Our mantra of “Build Your Future” represents a student-centered support system that utilizes peer mentoring and multidisciplinary collaboration on campus.

Structured educational support is our secret to success. Our award-winning model emphasizes thorough planning, thoughtful action, constant reporting and comprehensive measurement. Along with our expert team, student mentors are at the center of our approach.

College Steps is located on a growing number of college campuses across the country. Access to a College Steps experience provides high school students with an introduction to campus culture and classes, and college students ongoing support as they work toward a degree.

College Steps is partnered with both NORTHERN VIRGINIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE (NOVA) Loudoun and Annandale.
