New Visions Programs

  • New Visions is a full-year program that offers seniors a non-traditional, academically challenging senior year. These programs are demanding and extremely rewarding for highly motivated, mature, responsible, and academically capable students.  Students acquire knowledge through independent and cooperative learning, both in the classroom and in the professional work setting. The New Visions program is highly regarded by collegiate administrators as evidence of a student’s motivation, intelligence, and desire for success.

    New Visions students will divide their week between classroom theory and instructional days where students from will discuss literature, global concerns, and science-related topics in an integrated academic learning environment. Students will work on projects independently and in groups, while attaining mandatory credits for graduation. In addition, students will participate in rotational experiences where they will work with professionals, graduate students, and/or college professors that work within in their field of study.

    Accepted students participate in their New Visions program from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. daily at the Cayuga Medical Center or Cornell University, depending on the location of their program.  Students receive high school credit for English 12 Honors, Participation in Government and Economics, two elective science credits, as well as Concurrent Enrollment credits. Students are required to make their own transportation arrangements to and from their New Visions program. Busing is not provided by the home school district.
