New Heights provides support to student-parents in the District of Columbia. We believe teen parents can succeed - in high school and beyond.
DCPS has a responsibility to ensure that every one of our students feels safe, accepted, and nurtured. Through these efforts, we will work to ensure that students not only feel supported, but that they develop into the healthy, happy young adults they all have the potential to become.
New Heights is a school-based program located in 13 public high schools and 2 public charter schools in the District of Columbia. The organization works with both expectant and parenting students - mothers and fathers - who are enrolled in high school.
Students participating in New Heights work as partners with program staff to develop strengths-based solutions to the challenges confronting them and their children. Primary program components include supportive case management and educational workshops.
The following schools have a New Heights program within their building:
Ballou STAY HS
Columbia Heights Education Campus (CHEC)
Luke C. Moore HS
Spingarn STAY HS
Washington Met. HS
