What is the mission of New Frontiers in Learning?
What services does New Frontiers offer?
New Frontiers offers high school and college academic tutoring, as well as social and executive functioning support services. Tutoring and coaching services are provided during individually scheduled, one-on-one sessions throughout the entire year. New Frontiers’ coaches provide support for both high school and college level coursework, as well as support in the development of executive functioning skills. New Frontiers also offers two summer programs, each consisting of three three-week sessions, of which, students can come to one, two, or three sessions. During our full-day Summer in the City program, students spend the mornings participating in social and cultural experiences throughout the city (Museum of Natural History, Intrepid, etc.). Through these outings, students learn how to navigate the city, plan and initiate activities, live on a budget, and more. In the afternoons, the students participate in a book club, as well as varied executive functioning and leadership lessons. Some examples of lessons that the staff teach during the afternoon sessions include how to manage one’s time, techniques to identify and manage stress in young adulthood, and how to organize and prioritize responsibilities. Through our half-day College Readiness Experience, students get the opportunity to spend time working on the skills necessary to be college ready, such as academic foundations (written expression, reading comprehension, and conducting research), studying and managing your time in college, navigating the college campus, negotiating testing and classroom accommodations, and more.
