Each of the five Academies provides you with special learning opportunities and activities, along with personalized guidance from an Academy Adviser. All students will participate in at least two high-impact learning experiences, such as service-learning, e-portfolios, learning communities, writing intensive courses, and more. Special events and field trips related to your Academy are offered to reinforce what you learn in the classroom, such as trips to museums, performances, laboratories, etc.

The Academy Advisers
Personal academic advisement is a key ingredient of the Academies. Every new student – freshman and transfer – is assigned an Academy Adviser who becomes your personal guide throughout your college career at Queensborough through program planning, selection of courses, understanding of degree requirements, and more. Your Academy Advisor is the “go-to” person for many issues related to your success.
