The event will take place at CQA’s campus located at 55-30 Junction Boulevard in Elmhurst. Families of students who will be entering grade five in the fall of 2019 are invited to attend. Families will learn more about CQA, the school’s program and results, and the application process.
CQA was founded in 2012 with an interest in improving academic and life outcomes for English Language Learners and recent immigrant populations. Currently, the school serves 400 scholars in grades five through eight. With a focus on college preparation and career readiness, CQA strives to prepare 100% of scholars for college success. For five consecutive years CQA’s scholars have outperformed their city, state and home district peers on the New York State mathematics and English Language Arts exams. CQA was also named a Reward School by New York State Education Department twice, a distinction awarded to only the top 5% of public schools statewide.
