The first year focuses on fostering team work and building academic and social foundations. The second year, students are challenged with more rigorous sports and higher academic expectations. The third year students will engage in varsity level sports and be exposed to a college/career readiness curriculum, which includes college visits, admissions counseling, internships and job training.
All three years, students earn accelerated course credits to prepare for and pass Regents exams. Classes feature differentiated instruction, allowing students to receive targeted interventions, support services, more time on task with extended days, and individualized academic reinforcement. Single-gender small teams (15-18 students) attend all programs together with two content-area teachers.
