Grant Summary

The Metro Center for Urban Education at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development will work with 10th and 11th grade Teagle Scholars at Louis D. Brandeis High School and Manhattan Theater Lab in Manhattan, and Bronx International High School in the Bronx. The Adolescent Post-Secondary Education Exchange (APEX) Program supports a clearly articulated pipeline to college for disadvantaged students, the majority of whom are Black and Latino/a and the first generation in their families with the opportunity to go to college. Unique to this program, tutoring/mentoring will take place in class, after school, and at a Saturday Academy, which will run year round.
