Why Green Careers?
UAGC is rated one of the highest-quality learning environments
in New York City (NYC DOE Quality Review 2016). Not only do we boast
a rigorous academic environment, we also work to prepare all our students
for work in an ever-changing world.
It is our goal at The Urban Assembly School for Green Careers to expose students to the complicated environmental problems our world is facing and prepare them for a variety of professions that are now tackling these problems head-on.
Our CTE program is the focal point of this goal. A strong and effective technical science program gives our students a broad introduction to both the important issues and solutions, as well as potential pathways to either deeper study in college or entry into a career.
