Students seeking enrollment must submit an application and attend an interview. The interview committee consists of staff, college representatives, business and community representatives and/or graduating students. Not all students are accepted. Those not accepted are challenged to demonstrate change and commitment, reapply or are helped to formulate another plan.
If accepted, students are expected to earn a New York State Regents Diploma, develop a plan for the future and develop the skills to make the plan a reality.
Accepted students sign a non-negotiable agreement which includes: no drug or alcohol use at school or work, no violence (verbal or physical) and no plagiarism. Breaking a non-negotiable results in immediate loss of enrollment, with an option to reapply.
