On behalf of Teachers College, Columbia University and the staff of the Pre-College Program, I would like to welcome you to New York City. We have a very intensive academic program and some exciting activities prepared for you. In the program, we believe in learning by doing. You will have many opportunities to learn American language, culture and way of thinking by immersing yourself in a truly New Yorker experience.
As you browse through the program website, please keep in mind that your success in the program and in the United States depends on your hard work and dedication. I trust that you will do everything possible to meet all of the program requirements and I assure you that the program staff will do all they can to assist you in meeting your goals. I wish you all the best in the coming months.
