Kweller Prep offers classes to help students prepare for the NYS Regents Exams. In June 2021, Only Regents exams in Algebra I, English, Living Environment, and Earth Science will be administered.
For those planning to graduate with a New York State Regents Diploma or Advanced Regents Diploma, we would like to share a math and science pathway charts. Please review a Math Regents to AP pathway chart below:
Notice the earlier you start Regents Math (row 1), the earlier you can begin to take Advanced Placement ad College-Level Math classes. Colleges are always impressed with students who take high-level math, regardless of the intended major.
No matter what, take the Algebra 1 Common Core Regents and aim to score a 90+. 8th graders can take the Regents at any local public school even if your current private / Catholic / public school doesn’t offer it. Please reply to this email if you need help sitting for the 8th grade Algebra Regents. Some students start Regents as early as 7th grade. The sooner you complete NYS regents requirements, the sooner you can move onto AP classes.
At CUNY college readiness is defined by demonstrating scores needed to start college without remediation, the same scores that the College Now program requires for participation in college credit courses.
Minimum eligibility for college credit and college prep courses
High School Juniors and Seniors
College credit courses with prerequisites
All interested high school sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible for College and career awareness and access courses.
Sometimes, you can take an AP or Subject test in place of a Regents to receive credit. However, for science regents, you will still need to complete lab requirements and “hours”.
