College Now Fall 2020 Cohort Program

The College Now Cohort Program is sponsored by CUNY LaGuardia.  The courses traditionally take place on the LaGuardia Campus.  The Cohort Program is not the High School program that is hosted through the Academy of American Studies. For programming requests for the HS Program at Academy of American Studies, please talk with your Guidance Counselor regarding your course preferences for next school year.

The Cohort Program is where students from different high schools take classes together with a LaGuardia professor.  At this time, it is unclear, if instruction will be 100% remote, in person on campus, or a hybrid(mix) of both.  These courses when remote are usually held synchronously (at the time the class is scheduled).  So, if a course is announced to run on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-5:30pm, you will need to be available to attend this class either remotely (for example: through Zoom) or in person on campus.

The classes are tentatively scheduled to start September  14th.

Registration for these courses are due by June 5th. You will make your requests through Mr. Randle, the College Now Coordinator.  

These courses are open to students who will be Juniors and Seniors in the Fall.
