think STEP Mission

think STEP prepares students for the critical thinking and rhetorical skills that are required for success at university and beyond. Our programs cultivate proactive and enthusiastic student leaders who achieve higher grades and AP/IB scores, discover their future goals, and build up impressionable resumés that top universities require.

Critical Thinkers

Critical thinking is the process of considering and analyzing all possible stakeholder perspectives in order to discover the best possible solution to a problem.

Persuasive Leaders

As multiple viewpoints exist and multiple answers are possible for a given problem, top students must be able to speak and write persuasively in order to achieve success in one’s university, career, and life.

Thinking and Doing Should Never Be Done Alone. Inspired by Harvard’s writing courses, learn how think STEP combines small group classes with 1-on-1 tutoring for maximum academic and leadership impact.
