Another NYC Post Grad On The Rise
December 28, 2012Citi Preparatory Academy
Other states have been the site for many top post grads in the country. New Jersey has schools such as The Robinson School & CJEOTO, Virginia has schols such as Hargrave and Fork Union, deep south in Florida has TAAG Academy, IMG Academy and Tampa Bay International Academy just to name a few.
New York City has never been a city that has had a solid post grad institution. City Preparatory founded by Daryl Frazier and Gloster Solomon in the summer of 2011. With theyre AAU team(Team Dream NYC) they have had high school seniors who didnt have money to attend a top post grad, but had good skills. Over a couse of a year City Prep was founded.
City Prep plans to start off small in theyre first year by playing a competitve 35-40 game schedule. The schedule will include top post grad institutions aswell as Junior college and Universities JV teams. For students who still need to be cleared by the NCAA, City Prep will offer online classes and will partner with the "Princeton Review" to hold SAT/ACT prep classes.
City Prep Academy will house students out of a 5 bedroom, waterfront house 5 minutes away from Laguardia Airport. They will hold practice at a nearby recreation center which will also be their venue for home games. Athletes ae guranteed 3 meals per day which is covered in the $6500 tuition fee. Gear, game tapes, SAT/ACT prep, online classes, travel to & from events and gym rental is also included in tuition.
City Prep is already a top choice from some student athletes in the north east region. "We get emails every other day from seniors who need another year to do their thing. They give us their game schedule and myself and Solomon will go out to a game to see if they are fit for post grad basketball." However, City Prep is not the only post grad in NYC. Manhattan Sports Academy has been on the post grad scene for a couple of years. They currently have no housing for out of state students.
