"The college completion program has guided me through the beginning to the almost end of my college experience by helping with several workshops, checking in, and just overall support. I'm grateful to have been able to be home during covid although it wasn't the best experience with that going on, it allowed me the opportunity to be able to go back to school and follow through. I am happy and proud to say I'll be graduating in May. Thank you Antonee and Claudine and the team from CUNY of professional studies. "

Mercedez Davidson, College Completion Program participant

"When I took the CDA course in 2018, I just needed 16-18 ED credits for work but I didn't realize that I would learn so much from that program and how it would change me and become the catalyst I needed to get me back in to school to finish my degree. It changed my perspective and truly made me a better educator. Then, life happened and I forgot about trying to pursue school and my current full-time career, seemed liked too much work. But then the world shut down and I had time on my hands for the first time in years and when I reached out to you in 2020 to assist me with applying to an Undergrad full time program, you helped me and connected me to Antonee. I am forever thankful. Now, I am 3 classes away from the finish line, I'm so excited to close this chapter and proud of myself for finally seeing this through. I owe so much to the knowledge I learned from you and the other professors in the CDA program. So, with that thought in mind I have decided to apply for grad school, CUNY SPS of course, in the Youth Studies program."

"I made a great decision in enrolling at the CUNY School of Professional Studies CDA Program. I am happy and proud to say that I have earned my Child Development Associate Certificate in Preschool. The professors in the program are knowledgeable in the field of early childhood education and share the joy they have working in the early childhood field."

Elizabeth DiCarlo, Workforce Scholarship Participant

"Thanks to the CUNY/SUNY Workforce scholarship, I was able to attend Hudson Valley Community College, and receive my certificate in Early Childhood Administration. I was able to do my classes in the convenience of my home, online, after working 12 hours a day. With this certificate, I am able to get my Children's Program Administrator Credential. This was the last thing I needed to have the qualifications to become the director of the childcare center I plan to open this year. I am also able to show my children and friends that it is never too late to go to college! If you have a dream.... reach for it!"
