    New Programs and Approaches for
    High School/ University Collaborations
  • Historic Partnerships
    A range of schools, many reflecting creative and eclectic approaches to structuring education shared by Eugene Lang College
    Programs targeted at the pre-college and college-ready levels, inadvertently but effectively excluding students not already college ready level but who could, with supports, succeed in college
    Semester-by-semester options created great flexibility for some students and schools but not enough structure for students needing more support

    What is unique about The New School that might be helpful to K-12 educational efforts?
    Address critical K-12 needs
    How can The New School be part of the city’s efforts to ensure high school success and college access for all, especially those historically underrepresented in college?
    Address critical college needs
    What does The New School need in order to ensure all students succeed when they matriculate, and how might those lessons translate to other colleges?
    Keep what works
    How do we ensure continuance of programs and programmatic aspects that work?
