Hello everyone,

We know that the last two months have been very difficult. Remember though - you have persevered!

I just wanted to share some wisdom from our sister school - The Renaissance Charter High School for Innovation:





Hi everyone,

We hope you and your loved ones are well.

We will do our best to keep you posted with news from our office, please check the blog at least once a week.

Ana is in the process of updating the information - somehow she deleted some old posts and locked us out of the old blog!

College Greenlight: College Fly-In & Diversity Programs for 2016




One of the most important factors is in deciding if a college is right for you is whether or not you can picture yourself as a member of campus and for many students this means a campus visit.  If the college isn’t nearby, however, being able to make the visit might not be possible due to financial limitations.  The good news is that a number of institutions offer free fly-in programs, travel assistance scholarships, overnight programs, and diversity programming that comes at little or no cost to students accepted to their programs.

Check out this link for an updated list of these fly-in, diversity, and other programs that are great opportunities for multicultural students.



The State University of New York's 2016 Spring College Fairs are just a few weeks away!  We hope your juniors and their families will attend.

Pre-registration for students can be found here.
