Vision and Mission

Mission
(What do we do?) We are a school community that is dedicated to engaging students in realizing their full potential and preparing them to succeed at college and employment by providing them the opportunity to earn a high school Regents diploma.  (Who do we do it for?) As a transfer high school, we work with older, under-credited students whether they are long-time residents of NYC returning to high school or recent immigrants.  (How do we do it?) With classes offered around the clock from 8:00 a.m. - 9:31 p.m. Monday - Friday, 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.
