The overall mission of 82nd Street Academics is to compliment public education so that students, regardless of home language, will have access to quality higher education. We help students take “early steps to college.” The goal of our programs is to positively and profoundly impact a diverse network of families, and empower students to be successful in their pursuit of higher education and to become contributing members of society.
We offer a variety of programs including Pre-School, After School, Summer School, Chess, Piano and Test Prep to families in the Jackson Heights Community in Queens. Currently, we operate four locations at Community Church, PS 69, PS 148 and The Renaissance Charter School. By providing these programs as well as multilingual assistance for parents looking for their children to increase their chances of academic success, we extend the learning to their homes and change the trajectory of life success for all types of families in the Jackson Height Community.
Currently, we still have open seats for our Full-day and Dual Language Pre-school programs at the 3 and 4 year-old level. Additionally, we have enrollment open to all families for our 2013-14 After School Program located at Community Church, PS 69 and PS 148. Lastly, Fall Piano and Chess enrollment is open to all families and is located at Community Church and PS 69.
