There are many ways NewEdge Academy differs from traditional schools, practically every way.
In addition to serving as an ISP umbrella for home schooled students, we offer small group classes, as well as private, one-on-one tutoring. Our classes are designed on a common core foundation with emphasis on experiential learning, developing creativity, and incorporating projects as manifestation of learning. We are focused on building team work both in the classroom and within the community.
We also believe in partnering with other educational organizations to serve a wider community of students. NewEdge Academy is a vendor for California Charter schools. We have partnered with learning centers locally, and online for students world wide. We partner with organizations to offer scholarships and grants to make the difference to achieving success. We are excited to bring Kid Whispering to at-risk students who show promise.
We currently are in the process of offering A-G approved classes, providing the education students will need to move forward in their educational journeys into the UC and CSU colleges.
