SUNY Broome Admits Entire Windsor Central HS Class of 2022

SUNY Broome immediately admitted Windsor Central High School’s Class of 2022 to the college during the Windsor CSD/SUNY Broome College Express Partnership event Wednesday. This is the third year of the College Express Partnership. Windsor Central High School’s Class of 2020 became the first full class in history to be immediately admitted to SUNY Broome.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for seniors to have the college application process streamlined. The application and acceptance are happening right here. They’re walking away with acceptance letters today,” said Maja M. Szostak, Director of Admissions for SUNY Broome.

“There’s a lot of stress for seniors and I feel like this program guides them through the college process,” said WCHS senior Jasmine Dickson, who wants to study to become a dental hygienist at SUNY Broome. “One of my friends is actually interested in SUNY Broome now because she came here today. She wasn’t before.”

Whether students plan to attend SUNY Broome, have other post-high school plans or are still uncertain, they know they will have the opportunity to attend their local community college following graduation.

“This is super important for seniors who don’t know what they want to do. SUNY Broome is such a gem in our back yard and to have students be able to talk to SUNY Broome counselors is such a benefit,” said Christina Taylor, head of the WCHS Counseling Office.

While completing their senior year of high school, students can also engage in free “learning workshops,” regardless of whether they choose to attend SUNY Broome. Workshops will include such topics as scholarships, financial aid, advising, housing, placement assessment and more.

“The College Express Partnership has been a wonderful benefit to our students as they’ve weighed their academic and professional choices after graduation. The College Express Partnership shows them how accessible higher education can be, and the workshops available will help them in whatever avenue they choose,” said Dr. Jason Andrews, Superintendent of the Windsor Central School District.
