College & Career Lab

A tuition-free, six-year program offered as a multi-week intensive during the summer along with Practice Lab sessions during the academic year to progressively prepare students to succeed in their chosen academic and professional careers. We offer New York City middle and high school students the opportunity to explore a variety of academic and professional pathways. Through classes and intensive workshops led by New York University faculty, students develop essential skills to help them thrive in high school, college, and beyond.

Our Program

Our six-year program progressively prepares students to succeed in their chosen academic and professional careers through summer Exploratory and Immersive stages along with year-round Practice Labs. Through each stage and Practice Lab students receive introductory courses, mentorship, advising, and a specialized CCL curriculum to explore the ‘hidden curriculum’, enhance soft skills and prepare for the college application process.

Exploratory Stage

The Exploratory Stage introduces rising 8th and 9th-grade students to a variety of college-level subjects offered at NYU and explores the entire career landscape related to those subjects.

Immersive Stage

The Immersive Stage gives rising 10th grade to pre-college students a deep dive into subject areas across academic departments at NYU, offering internship opportunities and further career exploration.
