High School

Through an extensive partnership with NYU Tandon School of Engineering, UAI Juniors are eligible  to take a Pre-Engineering course at the NYU's Brooklyn campus. Through this rigorous program, UAI students not only learn how to code and build a robot, they also gain the invaluable experience of participating in a college-level course outside of their traditional high school classroom.
In addition, Through UAI's partnership with College Now at City Tech, our high school students can enroll in college credit-bearing courses for no cost. These courses are designed to both improve academic achievement and prepare students for the rigor of college.
CUNY LINCTLINCT TO SUCCESS  is a college access, transition, and success program comprised of three distinct but interconnected components (LINCT, Bridge to College and Career, and Strive for Success) that support high school seniors matriculate into college. LINCT (formerly known as At Home in College) provides students with specialized curriculum in Math and English designed to better prepare them for college-level coursework, and allows students to take the CUNY Assessment Tests at least twice at no cost. LINCT also provides professional development and resources to high school teachers and counselors. The program goal is for students to enter college without significant remedial needs. Bridge to College and Career offers guidance to high school graduates transitioning to college with the aim of combating “summer melt.” Finally, Strive for Success provides matriculated freshmen at several CUNY colleges with peer mentoring designed to help students navigate college life and improve retention. Currently, LINCT and Bridge to College and Career are expanding through a partnership with the NYC Department of Education.
