This support begins with our highly successful research-based Summer Academy that prepares students for the rigors of their high school schedule. Our High School Today, College Tomorrow (HSTCT) program follows a 4-year plan leading to the successful completion of high school.
The program tracks and supports students in their development academically and emotionally as they prepare for college and careers. Individual Educational Plans assist participants with preparation for gaining college admission, scholarships, financial aid, and any personal or educational concerns impeding HS completion.

We offer subject-based tutoring, counseling, health and wellness support, SAT and Regents test prep, STEAM activities, sports leagues and tournaments, nutrition services, visual and performing arts, leadership development, and trips to colleges and cultural institutions.
