At New Ventures Charter School, our pathways to education are tailored to the strengths and passions of each student. 

Through our fieldwork and internship program, we have designed a curriculum that aligns with the host organization's mission, with classes conducted off-site by partnering businesses across Staten Island. With an emphasis on project-based learning, students earn credits toward a high school diploma while exploring potential career opportunities in the process.

New Ventures students focus on fieldwork and core curriculum from 12:00 pm to 7:20 pm Monday through Thursday. Fridays are dedicated to internships and online courses.
