The College Now Team

Welcome to the College Now Office!

College Now is a collaborative program between the City University of New York and the New York City Department of Education designed to improve the academic achievement of high school students and prepare them for college. Our mission is to introduce Staten Island public high school students of varying skill level to the rigors and rewards of higher education by connecting them to high-quality scholarship and instruction.

    We accomplish our mission by offering students the opportunity to enroll in courses for college credit while they are still attending high school. To cultivate the college experience, many of our classes are offered on the 204 acre CSI campus where students receive access to all of our facilities and support services.

    All students participate for free! Contact the College Now Office today to learn more!
