Who Are We:
Satellite Academy is a transfer high school which serves a diverse population of young adults between the ages of 16 and 20 years old. Students come to us to get a second chance at their high school diploma, but along the way they find that our school is really about helping young people see possibilities in their lives…like going to college and becoming leaders in their communities.
We develop a strong sense of belonging through our advisory classes that focus on relationship building. As a member of the New York Performance Standards Consortium of schools, SAHS has a waiver from NYSED to offer alternatives to the NYS Regents Exams in all subject areas except English. (We still use an English PBAT, our alternative to the Regents exam, in addition to the ELA Regents exam.) Our goal at Satellite Academy is to be a transformational experience in students’ lives.
