The mission of Novitas Academy is “to provide students a safe, therapeutic, and nurturing learning environment in order to facilitate a successful transition into early adulthood.”
At Novitas Academy we inspire our students to believe in themselves, their dreams, and their visions. We encourage our students to be innovative, entrepreneurial, outside-the-box thinkers, as well as to pursue their interests and passions. Novitas Academy is dedicated to improving the lives of the young men we work with and their families. We believe in the power of inspiration, finding ones strengths, positive relationships, mentoring and goal setting.
We are a strengths-based program who believes in building a relationship with our students and supporting their goals and dreams. Our goal is to help our boys reach their goals. Our overall model of change is one of relationships.
Our founder is certified through the Arbinger Institute to teach our students, parents, and staff The Anatomy of Peace. The general philosophy is that if you have a heart of peace and see people as people and whose thoughts and feelings count as much as your own, you will have a positive way of being. Thus in return, your interventions and efforts will likely be more successful.
At Novitas Academy, we want students to want to be a part of our school. We are aware there are many educational options for your family and our hope is that you and your child choose us. We want Novitas students to see that our approach is refreshingly different and instead of forcing them to do what we want them to do; we join with the student to help them reach their goals and realize their potential through building their self-esteem and self-confidence.
