Armory College Prep High School Program
In our continuous effort to maximize our students’ potential with measurable outcomes, we have adopted a rigorous academic achievement model that includes Math and English classes on-site twice a week, daily tailored assignments, and continuous remote support throughout the week. The program uses Khan Academy’s platform to assist our students with 24/7 curated videos and exercises, access to timed SAT practice tests with real-time results, as well as in-class and remote coaching resources to assist students in achieving proficiency in Math and English. The approach allows our academic coaching staff to create individualized Math and English study plans for the development of strong foundation skills. The program tracks students’ progress, applies early intervention for those in need, and allows high achievers to progress faster towards proficiency. By focusing on core skills, the program is enabling our students to significantly improve their academic performance at school, while also maximizing their performance on standardized tests (SAT/ACT and Regents).
We guide our students through the challenging process of identifying the right colleges to explore. With over 4,000 colleges in the country to choose from, it can be daunting at first. Our counselors are here to make suggestions, and to learn about the goals, needs, and strengths of each applicant so that we can create a solid list of colleges that are good “fits” for each student.
Our ultimate goal is to have each ACP student apply to at least 2-3 colleges on or before November 30th of his or her senior year, and at least 6 colleges in total by December 31st of senior year. History tells us that following this schedule gives students the best chance to not only be accepted, but also to position our students in the best light to receive significant financial aid packages that make the schools affordable.
Writing & Arts Development
A core piece of the college application process is writing the personal statement. College admissions officers want to know each student's story and assess his or her ability to write well. The writing program helps each student develop and finesse all college essay writing requirements. Also, high level reading of great works further aids success in college.
