Every year, students graduate from our Center K-12 programs and go on to attend college and universities across the country. The Center K-12 Alumni Network was created to maintain ongoing communication with our alumni and extend our resources to these graduated students.
Available resources include continued assistance with financial aid applications, guidance for students interested in transferring schools, and part-time employment opportunities. Alumni attending Pratt or other NYC colleges and universities have been hired in the Center K-12 as teacher’s assistants and college access assistants to mentor current students.
In Summer 2019, the Center K-12 hosted the inaugural Reunion Luncheon for students attending colleges and universities across the country with the conversation centered on the transition from high school to college. The class of recently graduated program participants asked older alumni about their experiences and accomplishments since graduating the scholars program.
