All of the teacher go out of the way to help you here, so it you don’t do your part it’s on you. Quitting is not an option. They will be on you until you fix yourself and that is a good thing.

The teachers actually cared. It created a family type of environment, which I wasn’t used to. The teachers being so available really motivates students to do what they need to do. CUNY Prep really teaches you how to be independent and become your own person”
Before I came here I didn’t see the point of college. I hated school, so why would I want to go to school that I had to pay for and be miserable? But this school is not like high school, you are doing college work from the get go and it really prepares you. Now I’m in college and I love it.
One thing I learned at CUNY Prep was self-discipline. If there’s something you want you have to discipline yourself to work toward it instead of just waiting for something to come at you.
;hen I first came here, I didn’t want to go to college because I hated writing. But when the teachers at CUNY Prep worked with me on it in several different classes, I was like ‘This is what I’ve been so scared of?’ Now I’m in college and I love it and last semester I had a 3.9 GPA.
I think one of the main things that helped me at CUNY Prep was preparing me to test out of the remedials. So many of my friends from high school have to take all three of them, but I tested out of Reading, Writing and Math – so I got to start college in Calculus.
