School Notes

  • The goal of our academic program is to prepare students for success in college and beyond. To this end, we want to make sure our students are globally competitive. Therefore, there is a focus on technology literacy along with an emphasis on inquiry based learning as assessments are focused on project based collaborations. Our goal is to engage, enhance, and extend our learning with the application of our studies to real world problems. Here is a quick summary of our program:Accredited by the Middle States Association of College and Secondary Schools 28 Advanced Placement Classes includingAP Capstone Diploma Program Over 40 Honors courses Over 60 electives15 dual enrollment courses with St. John`s University and Marist College 4 Honors Academies (Engineering, Finance/Economics, Health Sciences, Law) 9 National Honor Societies 2 Certificate Programs in Computer Science Engineering and Entrepreneurship.

In addition, the school was awarded theExecutive Leadership Awardfrom Fordham University GraduateSchool of Education for its outstanding STEAM program
  • A hallmark of our academic program is The Honors Academy. Students select from one of the following academies: Law, Health Sciences (Medicine), Economics and Finance, or Engineering. The curriculum framework design for each academy is based on undergraduate core courses in the chosen concentrations. By helping students discern their interest in potential course of study at the university level, the Honors Academy program prepares them for their chosen college major. It`s like having a college major in high school! You are taking courses that revolve all around your major or specialized interest! Students will develop and use complex algorithms to explore the major theories and principles associated with each discipline. A primary goal is to empower students to see the relationship between the academy studies and their application to the real world.The program culminates with a research symposium at the end of junior year, an internship at the beginning of senior year, and a final dissertation with an oral defense at the end of senior year that will be judged by a panel of faculty members and outside professionals in the fields that correlate with the respective academy.
