Pre-College Initiatives

Rensselaer is committed to providing opportunities for underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students in grades K-12 that will improve their access to and their ongoing success in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. We accomplish this through year-round pre-college pipeline initiatives which include Tutor Time, RPI STEP [Science Technology Entry Program], PREFACE, GE Girls at Rensselaer, and other programs.

We also assist individual college-bound students who would like guidance and support as they progress through high school. We work with a growing number of committed organizations across the country who are also engaged in providing appropriate mentoring and enrichment to ensure their constituent students are prepared for success as they embark upon college education in traditional STEM fields.
