What we do
Why are internships important?
According to a survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), nearly 50% of employers would like to see an internship on a students resume.
An internship gives a student an opportunity to audition a job. It gives students the chance to ask themselves, Do I see myself working in this industry?
The experience of obtaining the internship itself is part of the value of the experience.

MEETING PARENT & FAMILY EXPECTATIONS
How many of you expect to connect with
your student once a day?
Based on a recent survey (May 2014) we found:
41% of New School parents interact with their students at least
once a day. 81% of New School parents interact with their students more
than once a week.
New School parent involvement is consistent with national benchmarks.
How many of you still want to have access
to your students grades and info?
Our research found:
ABOUT HALF of New School parents have their students IDs and passwords.
How many of you believe that you play a role
in your students success?
Our research found:
69% of New School students share academic progress with parents often or very often.
Students that share academic progress most often
show higher levels of academic achievement.
