About the School

Since 1994, our graduates have gone on to succeed in city, state, and private colleges and pursue careers in business, media, social work, education, and technical fields. Through college classes, internships, and digital courses, we provide a broad range of learning opportunities, and we leverage technology to maximize individualization, independence, and depth of learning. Our four-year Advisory curriculum focuses on the academic development, knowledge, as well as the critical thinking, research, and analytical skills necessary for college. At the Children's Aid Student Success Center, students work with a team of full-time counselors to explore college and career goals and complete college and scholarship applications. 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.
