It’s hard to believe that this year’s senior class started high school at the dawn of the pandemic. It makes this spring even more meaningful as they receive exciting college acceptances.

And those just starting high school, new 9th-Grade YPIE Scholars, fill the YPIE College Zone each day studying hard and exploring career pathways.

We continue to believe that students rise to high academic expectations. This was reaffirmed by a recent study from the Brookings Institution concluding that academic preparedness is critical for college success.

In partnership with the Yonkers Public Schools, our focus remains steady on ensuring students have the skills and credentials to succeed in the future economy.

Thank you for your commitment to Yonkers students.
