    Mission Statement
    Our magnet theme is an international program entitled Facing History and Ourselves (FHAO), a curriculum that engages adolescents in citizenship education and encourages adolescents and adults to examine profound ethical questions about history, decision-making, prejudice, and violence.
    New Haven Academy provides a rigorous education that prepares all students to succeed in college and become active citizens able to make informed decisions about their lives and their communities.

    We work to build a racially, ethnically and economically diverse student body, provide individual attention for every student, and guide students through the difficult transition from middle school to high school.

    New Haven Academy graduates will be independent thinkers who ask critical questions and who develop and defend their own ideas. In order to achieve this vision, New Haven Academy is a learning community in which all members--staff, students and parents -- know each other well.
