College Prep


Receiving your High School Equivalency Diploma is an awesome achievement. But it’s really just the first, necessary step to a brighter future. If college is your goal, there are lots of ways Grace Outreach can help prepare you for this next part of your journey.

Once you earn your HSE Diploma, you can begin college in September or January. Almost all Grace Outreach students are eligible for financial aid, and in most cases you will have to pay nothing to attend school. When you are ready to apply to college, Grace Outreach is a resource for you.

Grace Outreach can help you:

  • Explore different career options
  • Learn about the different majors available at local colleges
  • Identify and enroll in programs that provide financial assistance, academic support, and job placement

Before you begin classes at a CUNY school, you will take the Skills Assessment Exams. These tests are designed to make sure you begin your college studies at the appropriate level for reading, writing and mathematics. Grace Outreach will help you prepare for the test before you take it.
