  • College Now Program

    College Now is a nationally recognized educational program provided by Kingsborough Community College.  It allows students to get a head start on their college education, improve their basic skills, make a smooth transition to college and save time and money.  The application process for the program begins with sophmores who will be juniors in the upcoming school year.  Students with an academic average of 80% or better are eligible to take part in this program.  College Now representatives will visit the Petrides School and give a presentation of the program and available courses.  Students, depending on their areas of interest, register for the course and take part in a unique opportunity to receive college credit while still attending high school.
