Liberty PartnershipsBrooklyn, N.Y. – High school students in need of academic support can apply to the Liberty Partnerships Program this summer at LIU Brooklyn. The academic enrichment program for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday, July 10 through Thursday, August 23. Participation is free.

Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) activities include basic and advanced academic skills tutoring, SAT prep and career and college exploration activities. The deadline to apply is July 2.

“Support, information and encouragement are essential to a student’s success,” said Kim Williams Clark, Dean of Institutional Advancement and Student Affairs. “We are confident that students who participate in LPP will graduate from high school and pursue a post-secondary education.”

The program is funded by the New York State Education Department and is open to Brooklyn residents. Teachers, counselors and families can recommend students for the program, though applicants must have parental consent.

The Liberty Partnerships Program is presented by LIU Brooklyn’s Office of Institutional Advancement and Student Affairs in collaboration with the Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the School of Business, Public Administration and Information Science.
