Make this school year spectacular, with programs designed to put a little rocket fuel into the learning experience.

At New Heights, friends gather, laugh, find their passion, share their thoughts, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Our School Year Programs have something for everyone, for every personality, and are provided throughout the year to help kids and families make the most of their precious time – whether that time is spent after school or during school vacations.

We are proud of the experiential learning programs we have developed over the last 29 years and we work hard to make them accessible to all participants and families. Thanks to generous sponsors and funders, financial need is never a barrier to participation. Participants are encouraged financial assistance through our scholarship program. Payment plans can also be easily arranged through the New Heights office by calling 603-422-8235.

New Heights exists to serve the community. Our programs provide opportunities for youth to make choices, fail in a safe environment, and ultimately experience success—under their own power and on their own terms—so they learn to manage themselves and to sense, empathize, and grow with others.

Why New Heights?

Every child has their own unique potential in life, but obstacles abound. As early as the age of 10, kids begin to define themselves in limiting ways. They tell themselves they are bad at math, that they can’t do sports, or can’t draw. That boys are better than girls at science, that only girls like cooking. Popular culture, peer pressure, and limited exposure to new things can cement this self-talk and keep kids stuck for a lifetime.

Our programs are intentionally designed to break these barriers and open minds, by developing engaging, fun, unexpected opportunities to try new things in new ways. And while no two people are made of the same stuff, we’ve found a common formula for success: let youth explore and experience as many developmental dimensions as possible. Our programming focuses on creating an environment where youth are challenged and skills are developed in four key areas:

  • Academic – Experiences in science, technology, engineering, and math
  • Emotional – Pathways for self expression, individuality, creativity, and personal meaning
  • Social – Opportunities for connection to others and the community through team building, collaboration, and service
  • Physical – Adventures that encourage an active lifestyle, self-confidence, and an appreciation of the natural world

While any one of these developmental dimensions can spark imagination and challenge conventional thinking, we work to introduce youth to each — revealing new pathways to help them find their true potential, and new opportunities for passion, curiosity, and reflection.
