Welcome Back To School!
New York City is proud to participate in New York State’s College Application Week October 22-26 2018, an effort to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students who pursue a postsecondary education. So far 405 NYC high schools have pledged to help their students to apply to college and solidify their postsecondary plans. We’re excited to support your school community with these citywide college access events.

You’ll find professional development opportunities, student scholarships, college fairs, toolkits, and so much more!
