Who We Are

We are a school community that is dedicated to providing high school Regents diplomas to older, under credited students whether they are long-time residents of NYC or recent immigrants. We also aim to prepare them to succeed at college and employment after they graduate. With classes offered from 8:00 a.m. - 9:17 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 Youth Development (CYD) 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.
