Note from Colleen . . .


We are a great school for graduates from APW (and other Oswego County schools) to consider: a private, residential two-year school; strong academics and athletics; highly transferrable courses. In fact, one of our May 2009 grads is starting her junior year at Syracuse this fall and will be playing softball there.  We offer the student who is seeking a two-year college experience a competitive advantage, and most of our students (more than 80%) go on to complete 4-year degrees. Our sports program is exceptionally strong, with many students going on to play at  NCAA Division I schools after starting at SMC. And the winters are sure to be a whole lot easier to take than at northern schools!
