My info


Belmont Preparatory High School was founded in 2002 for academically talented students. The curriculum is based in the humanities and uses an interdisciplinary approach to challenge our scholars in all subjects so that they are college and career-ready upon graduation. We have incorporated numerous activities and programs geared towards achieving these goals including: Six AP courses, CUNY College Now college courses, a full-time college advisor, SAT Prep for juniors and seniors, partnerships with Fordham University, the opportunity to visit almost 100 elite colleges during and universities, PSAL athletics, and extensive student activities; International and Domestic Educational Excursions, and National Honor Society. 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.

Our early college awareness program helps students explore at an early age the academic, social, financial, and personal rewards of college and to address their areas of concern and build on their strengths. In order to facilitate our mission of college preparation, all juniors and seniors are invited to participate in SAT prep courses. A college advisor and guidance staff direct students from 9-12th grade in facilitating college awareness and understanding the application process.
