The CASE Academy allows students in their freshman and sophomore years to gain skills needed for their success in high school and beyond. By partnering with a quality and engaging staff during their transition into High School, CASE students are set up for continued support through critical services such as individual and group counseling. Students have a safe space to meet with a counselor advocate one on one to address personal and/or academic concerns. Counselor Advocates work to promote positive social emotional growth amongst the students and provide regular and ongoing communication with parents and families. Through participation in the CASE Academy, students in Forest Hills High School have access to team-building and educational trips, peer groups, peer tutoring, after school activities, and more. This program is sponsored through the generosity and valued partnership of the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development.

S.W.A.G. Program: Students Working to Achieve Goals
We have partnered with Forest Hills High School to provide an extended day program aimed at helping students improve their academic performance and increase their overall school attendance. Counselor Advocates work closely with families and school administration to provide individual and group counseling, along with credit bearing courses in key subject areas, to reduce chronic absence among high school students. Our interventions and services assist with helping students remain on track for grade promotion and timely graduation. This program is funded by the New York State Education Department.
