The New Road School's Mission

  • To build the confidence and competence of children facing learning, language, and social challenges through personalized, academic interventions.
  • We are committed to maximizing our impact on the nation's most challenging student populations, with a particular focus on those who have experienced little or no success in the traditional school setting.
  • To prepare youth to become responsible adults, able to participate in their communities and lead fulfilling lives.
  • To provide leadership and serve as a role model for improving the education of all students.

We believe children deserve an education that will enable them to grow into successful and self-sufficient adults. We design our programs to focus on the specific needs and strengths of each child.

Each New Road School program offers one-on one tutorial-based instruction in small classrooms that promotes strong and trusting relationships with teachers. Each student’s curriculum is flexible and adapted to leverage his or her individual strengths, and teachers employ a variety of teaching methods to accommodate the student’s individual learning styles.

Balancing caring support and empathy with accountability, we strive to create an environment for students that rewards their successes and builds increasing confidence and competence.

This teaching strategy, developed over three decades in our classrooms, has proven to help our students’ advance academically and to grow towards becoming independent and productive members of their communities.
