Early Start Academy

St. John’s University Staten Island campus opens its doors to high school students with Early Start Academy.  In this innovative program, qualified high school students take a class on campus in their future major or areas of interest with a St. John’s University professor. The cost of the course is a fraction of tuition, and the college credits are transferrable to St. John’s. Early Start Academy students who enroll in St. John’s  also receive an annual $2,000 grant for up to four years of continuous, full-time undergraduate study at St. John’s (this grant cannot be combined with the College Advantage Grant).   

Nothing prepares high school students for college and career success like a class in their future major from Early Start Academy.
