The Academies at New Milford High School
The Academies at New Milford High School is an intensive multi-level program. Students work on projects individually and in break-out groups. All the members of the Academies come together at least once a quarter for ‘big group’ work.
The Academies mission is to help students think critically and rationally, to enjoy the learning process in a cohort, and to be exposed to life experiences that may help to better prepare an individual for events beyond high school. Each quarter, students are given a project to research, act on, show what they learned, and draw connections from learning to real life. It is an exciting and thought-provoking program.
This is an extra program for students. The work is intense and most of the work is done during the students’ time outside of the regular school day.
