Programs

Broome Street Academy Charter High School (BSA) provides a holistic academic and supportive program designed to ensure vulnerable students, who are at risk of dropping out, instead graduate with a high school diploma. BSA is uniquely positioned to meet the layered needs of New York City's most disadvantaged youth, including those in the foster care system, homeless youth, or students who have attended underperforming schools. Through a model that combines intensive academics with wrap-around social support services, BSA seeks to prepare students to graduate prepared for a successful future, be it college or the workforce. In order to address the academic needs of our student population, BSA is designed to bring youth up to grade level through academic and social supports. Each student is assessed prior to the start of school and continuously re-evaluated throughout the year to determine academic strengths and weaknesses. Students are grouped by skill level to ensure classroom teachers can hyper-focus lessons and move at a pace best suited for the whole class. Students in need of additional support receive "push-in" support with special education teachers co-teaching in the classroom, as well as "pull-out" support for small group or on-on-one instruction outside of the class. Given the high needs of BSA's young people, our model goes above and beyond the classroom through a formalized partnership with The Door, a leading youth development agency. BSA is housed within The Door so that our young people have facilitated and easy access to the broad range of supportive programs available on-site. The Door supplements the academic program described above by bringing its highly successful college preparation and access, career exploration, and internship and job placement services to BSA - pushing students to be forward-thinking and prepare for what is beyond graduation day. To ensure students can focus on their academics and actively participate in their education, BSA and The Door also provide a full range of supportive services. We make sure that students' basic needs are met (food, clothing, health care) as well as their social and emotional needs (counseling, case management, support groups). BSA students can access the full range of free and confidential services available at The Door, including a full adolescent health center, health education, mental health services, legal services, career development and job placement, college access, nutritious meals, and arts and recreational activities. BSA and Door staff collaborate to provide intensive case management services for students in need.
