Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation led a planning team of teachers, residents, parents, and CHLDC to staff to create Cypress Hills Collegiate Prep, an alternative public high school, which opened in 2006.
- The school includes three distinctive elements: Latin American and Caribbean studies, community service, and college preparation.
- Cypress Hills Collegiate Prep offers students an intellectually challenging curriculum and small classes that emphasize developing college level writing and analytical skills. Our belief is that every student can succeed, and will leave high school ready for college.
- We use an inquiry-based curriculum, which encourages students to formulate questions based on their own interests, identify resources to explore their questions, and to take ownership over their education and their future.
- Partnership with Sarah Lawrence College. A private liberal arts college in Westchester County, NY, Sarah Lawrence is known for its seminar style of teaching and strong emphasis on writing across the curriculum.
