A. Philip Randolph Campus High School (APRCHS) offers students a college preparatory experience within the context of a supportive
 
  learning community. Randolph students apply for membership in one of three academies: the Medical Academy, the Engineering Academy, and the Humanities Academy. Each academy grants member students the opportunity to engage in special coursework and events that will prepare them for admission to competitive colleges and universities within their chosen fields. Our location on The City College of New York (CCNY) campus affords students an opportunity to attend college courses, seminars, and special events that serve to enrich their high school experience. Qualified students have the opportunity to earn college credits from CCNY and Touro College at no cost while enrolled in High School.


The Academy of Engineering: The Academy of Engineering offers students the opportunity to explore careers in Engineering. Students enrolled in the Academy of Engineering take courses designed by Project Lead the Way (PLTW), the leading provider of rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education curricular programs in middle and high school across the United States. More information about PLTW can be found on their website www.pltw.org.

Students enrolled in the Academy of Engineering are also offered the opportunity to apply for membership in the National Society for Black Engineers (NSBE) which is an equal opportunity honors organization supported by CCNY.
