We have Individual programs

and small group programs like The Build Your Best Life skills series!

This is not just another class, like a math class. This is a process of transformation.
An applied experience, the Build Your Best Life skills series has been developed with extensive research into the most-up-to date studies. With tried and true results, kids learn to identify goals and desires, develop and execute projects, differentiate themselves from the rest, and other processes necessary to transition into a successful life.

People pay thousands of dollars for this kind of transformation, catapulting them to new heights. This unique workshop provides:
one intensive, full-day workshop in which we set up the process
a full month of application when we work our plan.
another intensive, full-day integration, where we review, evaluate and present our results.

The really special thing about the month of application is that we are available to each and every one of the participants, every day, to provide resources and support to students while they navigate their projects. During these unlimited private sessions, with our time and expertise, you will get what you need to succeed.

Classes are small, so reserve your space today

 The New York TImes published an article about the kind of learning we stand for at NewEdge Academy, building leaders of tomorrow — where we develop inspired students who know how to structure, execute and evaluate project, interface with community resources, nurture mentor relationships, and succeed in life.

One of the biggest regrets people have is that they failed to live their dreams; they didn’t go for it, didn’t develop their gifts and pursue their interests. Don’t be that person.

Live passionately! Live large!
