Vision & Mission

The Founding Group and Board of Trustees have a core belief that students who have left high school before graduation, or who have not had academic success in a traditional school environment, have the right to a free and appropriate education. We believe that education is key for transitioning into self-sufficiency. With individualized attention, planning, and programming, all students can learn, can graduate, can go to college, and can have a successful career.

Core Belief and Values about Education

Newburgh Prep is an independent public school that opened in September 2013 to address many of the barriers and conditions that cause some students not to be successful in high school. Newburgh Prep provides young people with a non-traditional school environment that enables them to earn a NYS Regent’s Diploma and to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful in college, career, and life.
