Welcome to Forsyth Satellite

Forsyth Satellite Academy is a transfer high school for students who have not succeeded in their original high school. The school stresses learning in a small, student-centered community where "growth and effort lead to achievement and success." Formerly part of a network of Satellite Academies, Forsyth became an independent school with its own principal in 2010. But like the other network schools, Forsyth remains a member of the New York Standards Performance Consortium. This is a group that has received a permission from the State Education Department to substitute performance based assessments for Regents exams. Students are required to take the English Regents exam but they demonstrate their mastery of Global History, US History, math, and science through inquiry-based projects and complete a variety of tasks that are compiled in portfolios; and pass a final assessment to earn graduation credit in each subject.

Students are introduced to this approach to academics in classes that help them develop study habits and new attitudes towards school. Along with its academic classes, Forsyth Street has formed partnerships with several groups including CUNY colleges, Irondale, a theater company, Umoja Network for Young Men, a youth support group, Sadie Nash Women's Leadership Project, Facing History and Ourselves, and the Henry Street Settlement. After school programs are established based on students' interest and include robotics, technology, yoga and chess.
