College Now Program
College Now is a collaborative program between the City University of New York (CUNY) and the New York City Department of Education (DOE). It is a FREE dual enrollment and transition program for qualified NYC public high school students. Astor Collegiate Academy partners with Lehman College to offer college classes to our students.
The Lehman College Now Program services over 60 high schools in the Bronx and over 1600 students per academic year. Through College Now, qualified students get an early introduction to the college environment and a jump start on college coursework by taking credit-bearing college-level courses at the Lehman College campus. This experience helps students build the academic skills that are necessary to be successful in college.
College Now students are highly motivated students who possess strong organizational skills and the drive to excel in and manage their academic and extra-curricular responsibilities.
