College Support

Our two full time college counselors, Ms. Doris and Ms. Danielle, support our high schoolers with every step of the college process, including:

  • Exploring and touring potential colleges
  • Meeting with students for individualized support and guidance around college selection
  • Meeting with parents to explore college options and offer financial aid guidance
  • Completing financial aid and scholarship applications
  • Completing applications to public and private colleges and universities in and outside of New York City 

 

With some of the highest college persistence rates across high schools in Brooklyn, our counselors’ hard work pays off: UAI students have been accepted to colleges and universities that include:

College Exploration in middle school? YES! 

For middle school students, it is a very important time to begin to think about future plans, know how to make long and short-term goals and understand the connection between their own actions and positive results - hard work and commitment pays off in good grades and opportunity.  Here is a Great Guide  for parents of middle school students who may want to learn more about what college and career readiness in middle school looks like. 

 

College and Career planning starts in 9th Grade!

High school is a time for students to focus academically, challenge themselves and build a resume that showcases who they are and where their strengths lie. College planning starts in 9th grade. Students and families must be aware of the long term impact Grade Point Averages (GPAs), Advanced Placement Courses and Exams like the SATs play on college admission and access to financial aid and scholarships.  The more information students and families have, the better they are at making informed decisions and planning for the future
