The Queensborough Academies

the Queensborough Academies logo

Based on academic interests and future goals, all full-time students are placed into one of the Queensborough Academies. They are an institutional model for your success. Depending on your choice of curriculum, the Queensborough Academies provide you with special learning opportunities, activities and personalized guidance from your Academy Adviser. Your Academy will host special events and activities that are meant to reinforce what you have learned in the classroom and the goals you have set for your studies and career.

The five Academies are Business, Health Related Sciences, Liberal Arts (including Education and Criminal Justice), STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts).

Participating in an Academy will help guide students through their college career and make it easier for them to feel at home on campus, meet people, and get the best advice.
