The City University of New York’s commitment to the education of all New Yorkers begins long before the start of college. Through a variety of collaborative programs, CUNY invests substantial human and financial resources in service to the city’s public school students and out-of-school youth. The work CUNY does with the NYC public schools through the Office of Academic Affairs is known collectively as School-College Partnerships.
Currently, School-College Partnerships include CUNY-sponsored or affiliated schools; programs with pre-college and college courses and activities, academic advising and support services; and arts projects. The Office of Academic Affairs manages these efforts in collaboration with the New York City Department of Education and other organizations.
