Few high schools have the resources needed to meet the complex needs of these disconnected adolescents.
Broome Street Academy comprehensively serves some of New York City’s most vulnerable students through a unique partnership with — and co-location within — one of the City’s premier youth development organizations, The Door. Our model merges academic, social, and emotional services to prepare students to graduate prepared for a successful future. Through the support found at BSA and The Door, New York City’s most at-risk students will realize their greatest potential.
The Broome Street Academy Model
A key to our success involves supporting each student in building strong academic skills while receiving a mixture of academic and social support, including:
- integrated collaborative team teaching
- small-group instruction
- flexible grouping in the classroom
- daily academic enrichment opportunities
- literacy strategies infused throughout the curriculum
- academic remediation services
Supportive services are infused within the school day and available after school. In addition to having social workers and mental health counselors on-staff ensures every student has an adult mentor supporting them every step of the way to graduation.
