    2018 STEP Program


    Please read the information below for the 2018-19 STEP program:            

    The Special Talent Enrichment Program (STEP) serves Berkeley County School District students in grades four through twelve who have been identified through auditions as gifted in visual art, music, drama and dance. The program currently consists of a two-week summer session and after-school programs at various sites in the county. Middle school STEP students are also eligible to enroll at Marrington Middle School of the Arts.


    Students must audition to qualify for STEP. Music, drama and dance students audition before a jury composed of performing arts professionals. Visual arts students must bring to the audition site a portfolio of artwork and create artwork at the audition (see Visual Art Portfolio Guidelines). In addition, all students are given tests that indicate potential in the art disciplines. The audition seeks to identify students with outstanding potential in the arts, not necessarily those students who have had professional training.


    Auditions are held in January, but students must register to audition.  The link to register is:



    Thank you.
