Overall, College Now at Baruch College is dedicated to providing students with a holistic educational experience that emphasizes active learning, strong communication skills, service and leadership.

Specifically, College Now at Baruch College emphasizes its commitment to the necessity of a strong foundation in the arts and sciences, and supports the development of the following:

  • Skills in critical thinking and problem solving

As a program dedicated to the development of institutional linkages between college and high school faculty, staff and students, College Now is committed to the development and growth of collaborative programming with its very own CUNY affiliated high school, Baruch College Campus High School.
