The Say Yes Collegiate Preparatory Academy (SYCPA) has partnered with 100 Black Men of Syracuse and Syracuse University to deliver a comprehensive college access course called Collegiate Saturdays to area high school students six times per year. This four-hour course offers three tracks; SAT prep, Regents exam prep and AP exam prep. Students enrolled in either track will be offered, test-taking strategies, proctored practice tests, individualized assessments, and one-on-one tutoring for the core competencies measured on the exams.
Singers from Nottingham raised $250 at a Winter Concert at the school in early December. Members of the Concert Choir and the Vocal Jazz group performed at the show.
The money raised will be used to purchase new chairs for the groups’ music classroom. The students, who also performed at the Festival of Trees at the Everson Museum of Art, have raised enough money to purchase 11 chairs so far.
The Institute of Technology will host their Inaugural Alumni Day on Friday, January 11, 2013. All alumni are welcome to attend and visit the newly remodeled school. Building Tours will be from 4:00PM-4:45PM followed by a social hour in the cafeteria with light refreshments from 4:45 PM-5:45.
