Academic Enrichment Program

Academic Enrichment Services
Combining Highbridge Voices’ mission to “inspire excellence” with academic enrichment, the academic program goes beyond the bounds of traditional classroom teaching. At Highbridge Voices, students receive both group and individualized academic support to help them be successful students and engaged learners. From tutoring to homework help, Highbridge Voices prioritizes supporting our students in enhancing their academic enrichment.

In partnership with Fordham University, our students receive the following academic enrichment services:

Offsite and Onsite (if needed) tutoring is available for any student in need of assistance or enrichment. During tutoring sessions, students learn and review content and develop effective studying and test-taking strategies. Our students focus on math, reading, science, social studies, and writing skills in tutoring. Students can spend up to 4 hours each week in tutoring.

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) is a part of the Highbridge Voices curriculum for 2nd -12th-grade students. STEAM is a way to take the benefits of STEM and complete the package by integrating these principles into and through the arts.  STEAM takes STEM to the next level: it allows students to connect their learning in these critical areas together with arts practices, elements, design principles, and standards to provide the whole pallet of learning at their disposal.  STEAM removes limitations and replaces them with wonder, critique, inquiry, and innovation. In STEAM class, students have created air purifiers, learned about and did assessments on the air quality in the Bronx, and visited the NYBG to see the train show and learn about how it was engineered as well as the plants in the exhibition.

The Dr. Richard Barnett Foundation inspires youth to chase their dreams and empowers them to get there. A core part of that mission is to support more and better pathways to higher education, especially elevating opportunities and leveling the playing field for historically underrepresented students and HBCUs. In partnership with The Dr. Richard Barnett Foundation, our 9th and 10th-grade students receive the following academic enrichment services:
