Stepping Stone School Philanthropy
Our Campuses are well known for wonderful and engaging learning experiences, but what sets Stepping Stone School apart is our mission outside the classroom.
Ronald McDonald House
Stepping Stone School Supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Central Texas, a nonprofit organization that creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families.
Rhonda Paver, MA, Executive Director of Stepping Stone School said, “Stepping Stone School has been proud to partner with RMHC CTX for seven years and we strongly support the fine work done by this organization on behalf of the children and families of Central Texas.
Our Young Entrepreneurs and Philanthropists™ program has successfully increased the amount of funds raised each year by our school age children, while also teaching them the valuable lessons of kindness, caring, gratitude and giving to others.”
To date, Stepping Stone School and their school age students have donated over $80,000 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas.

Stepping Stone School is proud to sponsor the Notion in Motion exhibit at the Thinkery children’s museum!
Notion of Motion is a collection of more than a dozen interactive exhibits that explore every kind of motion–from the circular motion that underlies the solar system to oscillating pendulums and the motions that create art and music.
Stay tuned for more information as to when the exhibit will open and how you can attend.
