Liberty Partnerships Program

Welcome to the web page of the College of Staten Island Liberty Partnerships Program. Since 1989, the CSI Liberty Partnerships Program has provided students in grades 7-12 with the support services needed to move forward in their education. These services include: tutoring, academic and personal counseling, SAT prep, College Prep, Mentoring, and Advocacy, among others. Liberty, as you may quickly come to call it, also provides transitional support to junior high school students as well as their parents to ease the sometimes stressful process of beginning high school. Our goal is to ensure that our students have the tools they will need to take control of their future
