Academic Support Program

Helping Students Build Learning Confidence

The mission of New Hampton School's innovative Academic Support Program (ASP) is to create a greater awareness in our students of themselves as learners. As they progress through the program, students will conquer new skills, strengthen existing skills, and ultimately, build learning confidence. They will understand their individual learning styles, recognize their strengths, articulate their needs, and use strategies effectively and independently.

Each tutorial is designed or created for that specific student. So even someone who is in the IB programme and taking some difficult, higher-level classes may need the support of the Academic Support Program.

25%

Roughly 25% of the student body take part in our Academic Support Program. The range of services and personalization offered make it a perfect fit for any learning style. Many students utilize ASP for support in Honors-level courses, such as International Baccalaureate (IB) and  Advanced Placement (AP).


Distinguished, Intentional, Successful

As one of the first academic support programs in New England, our curriculum has been crafted over decades to provide a variety of services in a unique and thoughtful way. Some highlights include:
  • Consistent Learning Environment: Students are thoughtfully paired with a tutor that they will continue to work with throughout the entire year.
  • Constant Communication: Continual dialogue between tutors, faculty and house parents, as well as use of our learning management system, supports students wherever learning takes place.
  • Thoughtful Integration: Academic Support is fully integrated into the student's class schedule. This yields a high level of student engagement and increases the effectiveness of strategy instruction.
