On Saturday, August 13, MIT’s Kresge Auditorium overflowed with excitement, joy, and pride as Scholars, families, staff, and friends gathered for The Steppingstone Academy’s commencement ceremony.
103 members of the Class of 2016, all of whom are rising sixth- and seventh-graders, were honored with diplomas at the ceremony, which celebrated their hard work and the support they received from their families and commemorated the fact that they will be moving on to the next chapter of their Steppingstone journeys. Below are images of just a few of the moments captured during that special day.
As they transition into Support Services, we’re looking forward to continuing to work with these Scholars as they continue to succeed in middle school, high school, college, and beyond.
Be sure to check back tomorrow to read excerpts from Scholars’ commencement speeches!
