Dear Prospective Scholars and Families,

Welcome to the New Visions Charter High School for the Humanities web page.  On this site you will discover a road map to your child's future.  Through our innovative programs and college and career readiness tracks, we hope to offer your family the opportunity to excel beyond college in careers in the arts, public service and the media.

Our school is guided by the principles of "Rigor, Respect and Responsibility."  Our scholars build a foundation of academic and college readiness in our Lower House, where they learn the fundamentals of writing, reading, speaking and critical thinking. through our innovative Challenge Based Learning curriculum.  Once students complete the majority of their core requirements, Regents exams and a portfolio, they move on to Upper House.  11th and 12th grade provide them with the chance to intern in a local business, take College courses at nearby Lehman College, and experience first hand what life will be like after high school, with the support of an intimate community.

Humanities is located on the John F. Kennedy campus with five other New Visions high schools.  We are able to offer both the diversity of programming, clubs and athletics of a comprehensive high school, with the individual attention of a New Visions small school. Our graduates are prepared to face the challenges of their communities, the City, our nation and the globe.

We encourage prospective scholars to take a tour and see if Humanities is right for them.   We look forward to sharing your child's future with you.
