P.S./I.S. 78Q is College Ready!
On February 10, 2016, The Middle School students, grades 6th, 7th and 8th from P.S./I.S. 78Q visited Yale University. The students had an opportunity to tour the Yale University Campus and gain first hand experience in the day and the life of an Ivy League college student. The entire educational and fun experience was free and sponsored by SASF and the NYC Department of Education.
As part of our initiative to work with community based organizations, the students went on an hour long guided tour of the campus and had a taste of campus life, having lunch in Yale’s Common Dining Hall. Students were also able to ask questions of students currently in undergraduate studies and gain knowledge of what it takes to prepare for college. The students had a great time touring the campus and interacting with college students. “At our school, the aim of a trip like this is to continue the college conversation within our school and help students and families understand that their dream of college is attainable. It is also critical that students and our school community prepare for college early which will lead them towards a path of college readiness,” said Mr. Pavone, Principal.
