The administration of MCN+DHS is dedicated to creating a school community that supports older, under-credited students, whether they are long-time residents of NYC or recent immigrants, as they earn their high school Regents diploma. We also aim to prepare them to succeed at college and employment after they graduate. With classes offered from 8:00 a.m. - 9:31 p.m., we provide students who have adult responsibilities a schedule that meets their needs. We offer a challenging program with Advanced Placement and College Now classes and an extensive English language immersion program for foreign-born students. We are fortunate to have Comprehensive Development, Inc. (CDI) as our non-profit partner which provides free, on-site student support including tutoring, college advisement and placement, scholarships, career exploration and internships, legal assistance, referrals for housing and medical issues, and post graduation services.
