Dear Students and Families,

At New Visions Charter High School for the Humanities, your child will embark upon a challenging and academically stimulating high school career that will prepare them for college, career and beyond.

Our students are able to enjoy the feel of a small charter high school with all the opportunities provided by one of the largest school campuses in the city. Our caring, well-trained faculty support the social, personal and academic growth of our students, as we work hard to foster a relationship between parents, students, teachers and our community.

In our goal of college and career readiness, we offer Advanced Placement courses, double period content, and fast-paced Regents preparation, with a focus on STEM courses. Humanities students may be eligible to graduate with certifications in career and technical education (CTE), in addition to their high school diploma.

We encourage prospective scholars to come and see if Humanities is the right fit. We look forward to meeting you!

Magaly I. Hicks, Principal
