Welcome to the Huguenot Academy!

         The Huguenot Academy is a part of New Rochelle High School, that has been designed to provide approximately eighty students with a small, supportive setting in which to pursue their high school diploma.  The program offers high school students who have not experienced the success that they are capable of achieving, or the comfort that they are seeking in a school setting, an opportunity to apply for a “fresh start” in our alternative setting.  Student’s who do not demonstrate a strong motivation to enter our program will not be admitted, as we believe that initial motivation is a necessary prerequisite to engagement and success.

         The program provides students with small classes, personalized attention, academic supports, counseling supports, and a variety of instructional approaches. Our smaller learning environment also provides students with a greater sense of belonging to our small community.  Opportunities for community service and cultural enrichment are also provided as part of our program.    We strive to help students improve their self-esteem and we work diligently to help insure that each student experiences and achieves success.  The overwhelming majority of students who enroll in our program demonstrate improved attendance, grades and credit accumulation and go on to earn their New Rochelle High School, Regents Diploma.  After graduation, the majority of our alumni enroll in college.  Other graduates have entered the armed forces, trade school programs or gone directly into the work force.   Almost all continue to maintain ties with our school community, reflecting back to us, a sense of appreciation for the opportunity that they had, to attend our alternative setting.
