Donate to the Annual Appeal: Stuyvesant Needs Your Help!
ALL gifts to the PA are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law!
Please remember that our students and school need and depend on your financial support. So much of what makes Stuyvesant special - extracurricular activities, academic enrichment, extended library hours, the Writing Center, translation resources, tutoring services, and so on - are very difficult to fund only with city funds. Your support makes these vital “extras” possible. Donate online by clicking the link below. Your child will ultimately be the beneficiary of whatever you can give.
Remember: No amount is too small to make a big difference. We can't do this without you!
The Writing Center Is Open
The Writing Center is located in the library and is open everyday periods 4 through 8, on a drop in, first-come basis. Editors are available to work with you on any writing assignment and at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to final edits. The library is available for students to visit during free periods or lunch periods each school day unless otherwise announced. All students must scan in with their student IDs prior to entering the library. Many times of the day, the library becomes full within the first 10-15 minutes of each period. When it is too full, students must wait to be let in by a librarian as space becomes available. Additionally, the library has extended hours until 5pm Monday through Thursday, which is a good opportunity for students to finish up schoolwork or print assignments before they head home.
CLICK HERE for the library calendar with important announcements.
Tutoring Help Available
AIS tutoring (Academic Intervention Services) is available after school from 3:40- 4:40pm. These are valuable sessions where students can meet with teachers for extra help or make up lab work. There is tutoring available in Math, Physics, Social Studies, Chemistry, Technology, and World Languages as well as Biology.
ARISTA, Stuyvesant’s branch of the National Honor Society, provides free one-on-one tutoring to any student who requests this service. Students requesting tutoring will be matched with an ARISTA member who has scored above a 90 in that subject area. All interested students should go to the ARISTA website to create an account at stuyarista.org.
Donate Your Used Prep Books to the Student Union or ARISTA
If you no longer need your Prep Books from previous years, consider donating them to either the Stuyvesant Student Union or ARISTA, Stuyvesant's chapter of the National Honor Society. The Stuyvesant Student Union and ARISTA will resell your donated books at deeply discounted rates to raise additional needed funds.

New Format for Stuy PA Bulletin (Newsletter)
Our Stuy PA Bulletin has transitioned to a new format. Parents are now receiving a PA Newsletter mailed to their home addresses four times during the school year. The second Newsletter should arrive in mid-December. Please note there will no longer be advertisements offered in the newsletter.
Support the School While Searching and Shopping Online
There are many ways parents and supporters can help the PA by doing what we already do every day and at no extra cost to us. We can even save some money with money-saving coupons. If you search the web using GoodSearch instead of Google, shop online using GoodShop, make dinner reservations using GoodDining, a donation will be made to Stuyvesant if you indicate Stuy PA as your charity of choice. To learn how, please click the Support the School page.
NYS Senator Adriano Espaillat introduced Bill S-1787 to Authorize[s] the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York to establish standards for admission to special high schools (http://open.nysenate.gov/legislation/bill/S1787-2015)
(The special high schools include: Stuyvesant,Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, Staten Island Tech, Queens HS for the Sciences at York College, HS for Math, Science and Engineering at City College, HS for American Studies at Lehman college, Brooklyn Latin, Laguardia HS and all additional schools that the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York designates as special high schools)
Many Stuy parents attended the Dec 11 rally at City Hall to oppose the City Council Resolution to support the NYS bills to change the Specialized High Schools admissions policy from the current single, objective test admissions criterion to multiple, including subjective and non-academic, criteria. Many Stuy parents also testified at City Hall, signed petitions, and sent emails to legislators. Our voices make a difference! The resolution in the NYC Council may or may not come up for a vote. There will be more actions we can take as developments occur.
