Mission

Our goal is to encourage college-bound awareness and acquisition of essential skills among high school students.

Activities

College Now offers a full array of services centered around a core sequence of courses with a strong focus on academic, social and practical preparedness for college. Entry points into the program include college preparatory classes for students at all levels, college credit courses for qualified eleventh and twelfth graders, video production workshops, community-based service learning and hands-on science workshops. Talented CUNY undergraduate and graduate students provide mentoring to high school students in each program component as "teaching scholars," fostering a supportive learning community. In collaboration with college faculty, professional and curriculum development opportunities are offered to tutors and teachers both on campus and at the partner schools.
