SUMMER SCHOOL UPDATE
Due to the ongoing construction project for our building, Long Island City High School will be closed over the summer of 2023. Summer programs, including classes for students who need to make up credits, will instead be taking place at the Academy of American Studies. We encourage all students to take advantage of the Tutoring Options (click for more info) available during the school year now rather than need to make-up work over the summer.
