a message from the director:

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year.

On behalf of all staff members of the Flushing YABC program, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new and returning students. I congratulate you on your decision to join our family.

The academic expectations at YABC are demanding and rigorous. As such, the road may be challenging. Enrolling in YABC ensures that you will not have to face them alone. All of us, the administrative staff, the instructional staff, the tutors, your counselors and all support staff will be with you on the entire journey.
