  • Danish Visit on April 22, 2016

    On Friday, April 22, 2016, the Danish Minister for Environment and Food, Mr. Esben Lunde Larsen along with Ms. Anna Cecile De Klauman, Minister Counselor, Food Agriculture and Fisheries and five staff members visited our culinary kitchen. 

     

    In addition to providing a wonderful lunch Chef Bill Peacock and several of our aspiring chefs gave an informative description of our culinary program.  Wildcat graduate and Culinary Associate Luis Nova described the transformative hydroponics program.

     

    The Danish delegation was in N.Y.C. to attend the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. Ms. De Klauman had this to say about their visit to our Bronx campus, “I have to say that the visit more than lived up to our expectations! It was very inspiring and interesting to learn about the Wildcat program and your teaching philosophy – the Culinary program and the Urban farming and not least to meet and talk with your fantastic students. The food they prepared was amazing. When we left the Wildcat school the minister said, that this was a visit that he would never forget.”

PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

As another school year comes to a close, we would like to remind our parents/guardians that good attendance and punctuality is essential for the last remaining school days.  Our students need to complete all coursework and assignments in order to earn their credits for the spring term.

Passing New York State Regents is crucial to our students’ success and possible graduation.  Our dedicated staff will be forgoing their lunch break over the next several weeks to provide Regents prep classes.  In most cases, students will be required to attend between 7-10 sessions.  Please impress upon your son/daughter the importance of attending these classes.

We are looking forward to another inspired graduation ceremony on June 27th at the Fashion Institute of Technology.  Each year over 100 students graduate from the Academy.  It is a special day and we are happy to let our graduates invite as many guests as they want.  Some of the colleges this year’s graduates will be attending include: Baruch, Lehman, Brooklyn, CCNY, Hunter and several SUNY schools.

We are sure they will be as successful as so many of their predecessors, who have become lawyers, teachers, social workers, nurses, counselors, police officers and career military personnel.  One may even follow in the footsteps of Stephanie D’Amore who is a doctor of veterinary medicine.

The Wildcat Academy conducts year round school.  Students must either attend school or an internship site or may participate in the summer youth program.  No one is exempt from our summer schedule.

Looking ahead, students will attend school from July 10th to August 18th.  The August Regents exams take place on August 16th  and 17th.  Students on internship sites will work from July 5th through August 14th.  The 2017-18 school year begins on September 7th for all students.

Please have a safe and enjoyable summer!
