STEP Visit

Across Henninger, Nottingham, and Syracuse Academy of Science schools, we had 39 graduates in the class of 2021. These students applied to over 50 colleges locally and out of state. So far, our students have been accepted to over 25 colleges and they are all still making final admissions discussions. In addition, 16 seniors are enrolled in 65 SUAP, AP, OCC or SUNY ESF courses this year. We are so proud of our students and are continuing to support them to reach their goals and beyond.

For the 2021-2022 academic year we are serving over 112 students.
