"My name is Jordan Temple and I am a 2008 graduate of The Wildcat Academy. Wildcat Academy helped me during a very tumultuous time in my life. I was seventeen years old and had been to four high schools prior, but only had fifteen credits to show for it. I was adrift in my studies, and felt completely disenchanted with anything that school had to offer. Needless to say I could not see myself completing high school or attending College in the foreseeable future. Wildcat was a life saver. I completed my credits in the winter of 2008 and in the same month attended a Community College in Syracuse. It hasn't been an easy ride since, after dropping out for a year, but after completing an AmeriCorps program I went back to school and am currently in my final semester at LaGuardia Community College with a 3.3 G.P.A. Because of the resilience that the incredible staff at Wildcat Academy displayed me as they showed up for me day after day and pushed me towards graduation I can muster up my own. I plan on transferring to Queens College and majoring in Applied Linguistics in the summer. Thank you to all of the teachers and staff. You all left an indelible impression in my life."
"My name is Wykeithia Smalls and I am a 2009 graduate. Not only did Wildcat give me a second chance, they have given me a 3rd chance. I graduated a month before I had turned 20 and if it wasn't for Wildcat, I would not be where I am today (In BMCC with a 3.5 GPA). They don't just teach you, they help you learn. All the staff members knew every name of every student. We weren't just students and teachers, we were family. Everyone cared for everyone and wanted everyone to succeed. It's still like that until today because when I go visit I see it. No matter what the student is going through, they help you get through it. They don't give up on any student. Classes are small, there's always individual help, and they prepare you for college. This school is incredible. It's so incredible that I personally recommended many of my friends to go there and they have. Some graduated and others didn't but regardless, Wildcat helped. I pray that Wildcat is here when my niece and nephew gets older because I'm sending them there. Once again, without the dedication of this school, I wouldn't be where I am today."
"I am an Alumni of this school and I can tell you from xperience; that JVL Academy is the complete best! I entered with nearly half as many credits for my grade level and trouble without anyone caring. JVL Staff helped build a brighter future and I feel as though I owe my sucess to them!"
"I am a wildcat Alumni, class of 03'. This school is a great opportunity for youth to attain their high school diploma. The skills I acquired at Wildcat prepared me to enter college. I thank the teachers at Wildcat for giving me the skills that have helped me to be focused on accomplishing my goals. I have an AS degree from Laguardia Community College and am working on attain my BA from Baruch College. Thank You John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy Charter School."
