Mission

Steppingstone is dedicated to providing a superior learning environment for the uniquely gifted child – academically, intellectually, socially, and emotionally.

Vision

Steppingstone School for Gifted Education, located in a vibrant community, is dedicated to providing an outstanding education that addresses both the intellect and humanity of gifted children. We strive for accessibility to all gifted students regardless of ability to pay, for a sustainable population housed in an attractive facility that supports our mission, and to attract and retain the best teachers for our students and the best support staff for our teachers and parents.

Steppingstone School is an internationally recognized resource for gifted education, where daily interactions and research with national and international education institutions are woven into the fabric of our operations.

Purpose

We believe every child deserves a satisfying, challenging, and joyful learning experience. Our purpose is to provide this for gifted children.

More specifically, we provide this experience for gifted children by unlocking the gifts that are trapped by the limitations of the traditional educational structure. We present gifted children with the opportunity to discover their passions; set purpose and goals in pursuit of those passions; develop the personal, academic, and intellectual skills that will allow them to keep options, open; realize the successful achievement of their goals; and do this with integrity and consideration for society and the world.
