Brooklyn College College Now
Eligible students in 11th and 12th Grade earn college credits through Brooklyn College. There is no cost for the program and while students have been able to take some coursework at SPHS, students take the majority of courses on campus, which adds to the experience. Coursework is taken after school and/or on weekends.
NYU College Preview Program
Eligible, select students in the 12th Grade take college courses alongside NYU underclassmen. Although students do not earn credit for this experience, they do receive letters of participation which they can include in their college applications. The only cost is for transportation and textbooks, which the school will absorb. Coursework is taken after school.
