NewHope Academy - Extension of Services

Bridging the Gap Beyond High School 
NewHope Academy is excited to expand our services by offering an extension of services for 17 to 21-year olds. This day program is provided at our facility to bridge the gap from high school to college/career success. 
Our team assists students in living independently, working productively, and navigating college/career life successfully while also utilizing the available resources in their community.  

  • Guided support is provided throughout enrollment and student plans are individualized. Time is spent getting to know the student’s current strengths and challenges to develop solutions and strategies to achieve a successful and satisfying adult life.  

Students work individually and in groups with an academic mentor to solidify an educational or vocational course of study and monitor progress in classes. They also work with a social worker to implement a therapeutic course of action and monitor social and emotional progress.

Program Focus 
Our program is designed to guide young adults in developing skills that are critical to a successful and satisfying adult life. Staff coordinate with local community colleges and outside professionals to develop an all-inclusive approach to effect positive change, authentic social experiences, and to foster success. 
NewHope’s transition program provides students with a variety of experiences learning about the world around them in a more meaningful way through academic advising, real life experiences, coaching, and social emotional support.
