EXCEL @ NYU Academy

EXCEL in Writing, Thinking and Inquiry is designed to prepare talented but underprivileged high school students in the South Bronx for high academic achievement and college success. It builds upon The Children’s Aid Society’s longstanding college prep EXCEL (Educational Excellence Creating Empowered Leaders) model, and represents an innovative collaboration between Children’s Aid, New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, & Human Development, The Teagle Foundation and The Squire Family Foundation. Through an intensive year-round program, students are exposed to the Liberal Arts—with an emphasis on critical thinking, research and writing skills—that culminates in a month-long summer program at NYU.
