More about New Heights

In the underserved New York City neighborhoods that New Heights targets, only 33% of Latino and 26% of African-American students in public high schools graduate in four years and more than 1/3 of families live in poverty. New Heights believes that increasing access to education is key to bridging this income gap - on average, a high school graduate earns 38% more than a high school dropout per year, while a college graduate earns 64% more.

New Heights uses basketball as a “hook” to engage our student-athletes in a variety of educational and leadership-development opportunities, ensuring that each participant in need receives guidance and support in their journey to high school graduation. We provide subject-specific tutoring and homework assistance to student-athletes who need academic support, as well as standardized test preparation and high school/college admissions counseling.

At New Heights, the basketball court is a “classroom” in which we encourage our participants to develop and apply leadership and life skills. We aim to help all students reach their greatest potential as academic and athletic leaders.
