individually and partners them with an appropriate role model.
first goal is to assure that every student who wants to go to
college, will have the opportunity to do so. To date, over 80%
of our pupils have taken advantage of our academic and application
assistance to achieve the goal of higher education.
those who choose the vocational route, we are there to assist
them in getting into apprenticeship programs with trade unions
and companies in the Western New York area, where they will have
the opportunity to develop the skills and abilities necessary
to earn a living wage in today’s society.
We also feature our Parent and Guardian
Advocacy Program. This program helps us to better understand
the overall needs of each student, and gives parents and guardians
the chance to realize the importance of their participation in
the future success of their children.
