About US

For over 65 years, GCSA has supported students in underserved New York City communities so they can achieve their academic goals and career dreams. We help high school students explore their personal goals and assist them in preparing and applying to the postsecondary programs of their choice. To support students in their journey, each is matched with a professional mentor from one of our partner organizations. Upon graduation, students enrolled in GCSA’s program are provided a scholarship to help alleviate the financial burdens of pursuing higher education.

GCSA offers underserved high-school students a chance to set goals, dream big, and build a bright future, knowing that they have a reliable support system in place.
