NYC Citizenship in the Schools

On September 20, 2012, during Constitution and Citizenship Week, Mayor Bloomberg together with Chancellor Walcott announced the launch of NYCitizenship in Schools.  A new citywide program that offers free immigration information, assistance and financing options to eligible parents of students in the city’s public schools seeking to begin the application process to become U.S. citizens.

 By helping the parents in our school communities naturalize, their children may derive citizenship at no additional cost if they are under the age of 18 and meet certain requirements. As you may know, for students that become U.S. Citizens, there are additional opportunities for scholarships, financial aid, and student loans as they apply for college. There is also a microloan opportunity with free financial counseling available to help parents who cannot afford the $680 United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) filing fee or who do not qualify for the fee waiver.

On Saturday, December 15th 2012 the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs will host a service event at the Newcomers High School at 2801 41st Avenue, Queens, NY 11101, for parents eligible to naturalize.

Storm Preparation

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we prepare for the storms of Hurricane Sandy to come over our area, I would encourage you to listen to NYC.gov, 1010 WINS or other forums where you get information from the City government.

Queens Collegiate is a NYC public school, and as such will follow all directives by the Mayor and/or Chancellor. If they select to open schools on Monday, we will be open. If they select to close schools, we will close.

Please listen to one of the many outlets for information from NYC Government (1010 WINS, nyc.gov, major news stations, etc.) If you have questions, please call 311 for assistance.

All the best,

Ms. Dubei
