Step-Up Mentorship Program
The Northwest Suburban Integration School District Step-Up Mentorship Program helps promote student achievement by encouraging students to focus on four educational concepts: Aspirations, Expectations, Opportunities and Achievement. Resources for educators involved in the Step-Up Mentorship Program will be made available on this website.  

The Step-Up Mentorship program begins with a week long Summer Summit held at a metro college campus.  The Summer Summit is intended to prepare students leaving eighth grade for the increased rigor they will encounter in ninth grade.  Participants are identified by their school district as potentially benefiting from additional academic and social support and guidance. 

Students that participate in the Summit receive additional guidance and are involved in mentorship activities throughout their high school careers. 

If you have any questions about the Step-Up Mentorship Program, please contact John Warren at 763-450-1306 or at jwarren@nws.k12.mn.us.
