College & Career Readiness

We help each student as they prepare for and select the right college or career based on their interests and passions.

Overview

Our College and Career Readiness (CCR) department is designed to familiarize families with college options while preparing students for college completion or entering a career. We provide students with intensive academic support for SAT, AP and Regents test preparation. We take our high school scholars on college visits and provide intensive college and career counseling sessions to support students with choosing the right college or career. We offer parent workshops to familiarize and educate families on college preparation, financial aid to pay for college, and support for their child during their college years.

College Courses

Inwood Academy participates in the NYC College Now program and has partnered with the City College of New York. This partnership gives Inwood Academy students preference for taking college courses at City College, and at no charge. Upon successful completion of courses, students receive both college credit and high school credit. In addition to the City College courses, qualified students can take courses at other participating College Now institutions.

Senior Year

A dedicated counselor works with each senior to help identify the best college match and ensures each scholar applies for multiple colleges, completes FAFSA, and applies for scholarships. The counselor corresponds with college admissions and scholarship representatives to schedule visits and interviews and implements partnerships for our students, including those with NYC’s College Now and College Starter programs.
