About the School

City-As-School is an experiential learning school that is part of the Consortium for Performance-Based Assessment. We believe that young people learn best through meaningful hands-on learning experiences that culminate in final projects in real world settings. All of our students participate in credit-bearing internships at organizations across New York City for half of the school week and classes within the school that build to final graduation projects, called PBATs, for the other half. As a Consortium School, our students develop and present PBATs instead of taking NYS Regents exams. Our students choose their internship and classes each academic cycle through a diverse menu of options with the support of their advisor, a teacher who sees them through to graduation. In addition to their advisor, each student is connected to guidance counselor and career-and-college counselor. While many of our students are between the ages of 16 and 21, we support younger students through highly-supportive group internships and foundational classes. We are part of the Career Readiness and Modern Youth Apprenticeship (CRMYA) pilot, which helps us support career readiness for all our students. We have courses that help our ninth and tenth graders explore their career interests and develop readiness skills. Our students can apply for apprenticeships in tech, finance, and business, which allows them to earn and learn while in high school.
