“At CUNY Prep, we establish a college-going culture that starts the moment our students walk through our doors and continues through their college graduation”

Over the past eight years, we have learned a great deal about the challenges our students face once they enter college.   As such, we’ve developed a very structured bridge to college for our students who have successfully completed the first phase of our program and passed the High School Equivalency Exam.  The College Transition Academy prepares students for the college entrance exams at CUNY schools and helps them build some of the softer skills needed for college success, like time management and self-advocacy.  Then, once they are college students, they have access to our College Success Network, which supports them throughout their first year and beyond.
