A second chance for older students
Offerings limited due to small size
Arturo A. Schomburg Satellite Academy Bronx is a small high school in Longwood serving grades 10 through 12. Students focus deeply on a few subjects at a time. Smaller classes and lots of support, such as tutoring, help students meet graduation requirements.
"We are a creative, compassionate, academically challenging community with a tradition of inpsiring its learners to make positive changes in their lives and the world while becoming highly prepared for college/career," said principal Marsha Vernon, who has led the school since 2011.
This is a transfer alternative school, which admits older students, ages 16 to 19, who have fallen behind in credits, dropped out, or need a fresh start. Transfer schools are designed to help students get back on track towards graduation.
Programs include Learning to Work internships, before and after school tutoring, evening classes, College Now courses, and vacation and summer school. The school partners with the LEAP-Arts program, Lorenzo Dance Co., R. F. Art Consultants, and NYEdge for its after school programs.
The school is tiny, with fewer than 200 students. Extra offerings are limited. PSAL alternative league sports include boys and girls basketball, girls volleyball and co-ed softball.
