About New Ventures

The mission of New Ventures Charter School is to create a learning community in which all students, including those living in challenging economic circumstances and those living with emotional challenges and other disabilities, develop the skills and social fluency to lead fulfilling and contributive lives in their communities.

New Ventures promotes college and career readiness for over-age and under-credited, disconnected, and at-risk youth aged 16-21 living on Staten Island, who have earned a minimum of 10 high school credits and passed one required Regents Examination, enabling them to graduate from high school prepared to excel in their academic, professional, and personal lives.
