Sullivan High School Newcomers Academy Logo

The Newcomers Academy offers a comprehensive program that will meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of students and their families.  We work in partnership with refugee agencies, elementary schools, clinicians, and community organizations to provide a seamless experience with, and transition into, American culture.


All High school students who are English Language Learners (ELL)


To provide a strong education for all of our students, enabling them to become participatory citizens in a democratic society, life-long learners, and productive, working members of their local communities.

We Believe:

  • All students can learn.
  • It is the responsibility of the entire school community to help students learn.
  • Our educational environment must meet the needs of a diverse student body through differentiated instructional methods.
  • Students must participate and share in the responsibility for their own learning.
  • Each student's culture and heritage enriches the entire school community and must be respected and nurtured.
