Care about teaching kids character & culture?


CQA Welcomes You.

CQA is a new and growing charter middle school serving a multi-ethnic, English Language Learner (ELL) and immigrant community in Elmhurst, the “United Nations” district of Queens.  In 2014-2015 we will serve 300 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students. In future years, we will expand to serve more than 1,000 students in grades K-12, preparing our students to excel in college and beyond. According to research, fewer than 50% of NYC current ELLs graduate from high school, compared with the citywide average of 65%. We aim to change that, and we want you to help us.
