Baruch College Campus High School
Baruch College Campus High School (BCCHS) was founded in 1997. The school was a vision between Anthony Alvarado, the former superintendent of Community School District 2, and Matthew Goldstein, the former President of Baruch College. The idea was to create a small, liberal arts high school that had college prep as its focus, on a college campus.
Baruch College Campus High School is a school with a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that mandates academic requirements exceeding those of the New York State Department of Education. Today, BCCHS is in its 8th year having graduated three of its classes. All students at BCCHS have been admitted to a four year college or university.
As a college dedicated to academic excellence and rigorous standards, Baruch College supports the mission of Baruch College Campus High School to help ensure the pre-college education of students in New York City.
Collaborative programs with Baruch College Campus High School incorporate student and faculty projects, including professional development workshops and departmental collaboration. Each year, a large percentage of BCCHS students join College Now and enroll in college courses and workshops. Additional initiatives include tutorial support in the high school afterschool program, information literacy classes for seniors, and SAT preparation and college-prep mentoring.
