Statement Arts to Rerun Successful College Preparatory Program in Washington Heights for Needy Nyc Kids

by Marilyn Roca Enriquez in


New York, N.Y. – New York City non-profit Statement Arts will be repeating its incredibly
successful College Preparatory Program, Expanding Horizons, at the United Palace of Cultural
Arts.

Started in 2012, this program mentors under-served and "atrisk" high school seniors with an
eye towards the arts. College Prep students are guided through every step of the college application process including SAT preparation and essay drafting. The program boasts a 100% success rate for college acceptance.

“There is a real need for a more focused, hands-on college preparation class for aspiring artists
and musicians, especially for kids living at or below the poverty line. Our students can’t afford
the private lessons or coaching necessary to prepare for the rigorous college audition process,”

Liza Politi, Founder of Statement Arts, said. “We are trying to level the playing field to allow our kids further exposure to the arts.”
