AECI’s mission includes preparing students for the rigors of college. Through partnerships with renowned colleges and universities, AECI students earn college credit as early as their sophomore year.
SUPA College Credit Classes: Sponsored by Syracuse University and provides students with exposure to rigorous academic courses in Public Speaking, Spanish, and Sports Management. AECI teachers are trained by Syracuse’s renowned faculty to provide students with the best quality instruction.
College Now: Through CUNY’s prestigious College Now program, AECI students get to enjoy and experience taking college classes on CUNY campuses while still enrolled at AECI. Our students get to enjoy a wide variety of classes at City College, Lehman College, and Bronx Community College.
AP Classes: AECI students have the opportunity to take AP Computer Science Principles as early as sophomore year. Once finishing the math high school curriculum, students can take AP Statistics.
Personal Finance: Students earn real world applications of the content learned in their math classes. Through our partnership with Metropolitan College of New York, students enrolled in Personal Finance receive college credit during the junior year.
Linct for Success: In New York City, only 22% of students enter CUNY college ready. Through our partnership with CUNY’s Linct for Success, our students prepare for CUNY’s ELA and Math entrance exams to ensure they avoid remedial classes upon entry to CUNY’s colleges.
