PSAT and SAT
 

Sophomores and juniors sit for the PSAT in October of each year.  It is expected that all juniors will take the SAT I for the first time in the spring of that year in May and again in the fall of senior year by November. 

 

HSGC runs an SAT prep course through New York Cares/Kaplan on one afternoon once a week in preparation for the May test. It is offered to free for a group of 25 students who are selected for this great opportunity!

COLLEGE ADVISORY CLASSES
 

Students in every grade are enrolled in college advisory classes to learn academic skills needed for sucess and to learn about every step leading to the college application process. Juniors and seniors work on creating their resumes and personal statements and get individualized feedback. Seniors are walked through every step of college application and financial aid application processes.

 
PEER LEADER PROGRAM
 

Each year, a group of rising 12th graders are selected to be peer leaders. They are selected based on being on track for graduation, their involvement in the school, their leadership potential, letters of recommendation, application, and interview. Students spend 4 days/3 nights at a college to train as leaders to mentor their peers in school year. They ensure all 12th graders complete their application process. As promoters of college going culture in our school, they develop initaitives including SAT registration drives.

CAREER AND FOCUS PROGRAM

 

As a part of the HSGC core curriculum, 12th graders are encouraged to further their knowledge of local and global issues as well as their own personal interests by taking part in semester long career readiness activities. The Careers in Focus program is made up of experiences such as career days, professional panels, job shadowing days and internships which serve to not only give students first hand knowledge of issues of concern to them, but will enable them to gain important professional experience and prepare them for the work world.
