BROOKLYN -

A nonprofit organization is celebrating the lives of some young adults whose lives it haschanged.

AdmissionSquad is an organization that helps students prepare for exams that allow them to get into top high schools and follow the path toward their dreams.

Thirty students are graduating from the program and moving on to New York City’s most elite high schools like Stuyvesant High School, High School for Math, Science and Engineering at City College, Brooklyn Tech and more.

Several students are also receiving scholarships to have the opportunity to attend the program next year.

The graduation ceremony focuses on celebrating the students and their accomplishments before they move on to the next step in their lives.

AdmissionSquad is not just exam prep, though. Students are also given mentors who went to the city’s top schools to provide them with insight from their own experiences.
