College: Syracuse University
“I remember during the beginning of my senior year, I was unaware of the college path I wanted to embark. However, the college advisors, Ms. Henriquez and Mr. Kurz, exposed me to a variety of college possibilities. I was the first child in my family to go through the college process, and with the help of the college advisors it made it less stressful. Upon receiving an acceptance letter from Syracuse University, I immediately shared my excitement with Ms. Henriquez and Mr. Kurz who were just as excited as I was. The college advisors helped me accomplish goals I never thought I was capable of reaching and still today I can count on them for advice. Many high schools with large amounts of students don’t have the opportunity to spend extensive time with their advisors due to the large ratio of students to advisors. This is one of the advantages of smaller schools such as BCSM. BCSM knows that college is a big step in a student’s life and future.”

“Attending a small sized school like BCSM allowed me to receive individual attention from teachers that believed in me. It taught me the value of creating and sustaining relationships and helped me realize that some of the staff were not only teachers from the past, but mentors I can ask advice from in the present.

“I have a plethora of great experiences from attending the Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics. But, if I had to state my most memorable experience, it was when I was fortunate enough to travel to Mali, Africa with other BCSM students in hopes of building a school for the local community. This single trip has changed my life forever and I would not have been granted this opportunity if I had not attended such a great institution.”
