The Center for Excellence & Innovation (CEI) is NCC's headquarters for K-16 grants and partnerships. CEI is dedicated to supporting Long Island youth in completing high school on time and entering post-secondary education and the workforce as fully prepared young adults.

CEI grant initiatives, generously funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the New York State Education Department, provide a wide array of services designed to improve student performance, increase high school graduation rates, and increase the number of students entering college.
