Mission

Liberty High School Academy for Newcomers is a small learning community, located on 250 West 18th Street in New York City. We serve new immigrant students or students who still require English acquisition in grades 9 through 12. We are dedicated to educating students of diverse cultural and academic backgrounds, as they make the transition to the American educational system. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for students to focus on acquiring English as an additional language while celebrating student diversity.

We believe in providing high quality instruction in order to prepare students to become College and Career Ready as well as responsible contributors to a global society. We engage students and families by providing after school classes, activities, career, academic and personal counseling in an effort to support students reach their highest potential.
