Outside Academic Programs

Below is a list of independent programs which offer academic opportunities to select students throughout NYC. All of these programs will have specific requirements for admission; academic, ethnic and/or financial. The mission of these programs is to provide opportunities for academic and personal growth. Some may assist your child in applying for boarding schools, others in providing summer academic intensives.

We encourage you to view each website for eligibility. If you are interested and qualify for any of the programs, please speak with your child’s guidance counselor. Programs may require parents to register online.
