Gotham also provides students with college and career exploration and preparation opportunities to equip them for their postsecondary life after high school. - We have an extensive Internship program that offers upperclassmen the opportunity to intern at one of our 100+ partnerships across NYC in diverse fields, including medicine, fashion design, and culinary arts. - We are a FutureReadyNYC school, providing access to courses for those interested in the healthcare field, while also preparing students for work in any field. Students explore a range of careers, acquire 21st century employability skills including financial literacy, and earn paid work-based learning opportunities and early college credits and credentials. - Our College Pathway Program provides students the opportunity to take college courses all four years to graduate with an Associate's Degree in addition to a high school diploma. 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.
