Through our STEAM curriculum, students learn to question, test, observe, collaborate, and explain their findings in all activities. These skills are crucial as children experiment and investigate issues relevant to the world around them through hands-on learning opportunities.

During the critical high school years, students face big choices around college and careers. New York Edge helps students gain a practical understanding of the decisions they face, weigh their options, chart a path towards their dreams, and take critical steps along that path. Whether students are taking on college applications, financial aid forms, and standardized tests, looking to enroll in a trade program and get to work quickly, New York Edge equips them with the skills and support they need.

New York Edge programs help students understand that reading and writing can help them express their feelings, connect with each other, and succeed in the classroom. Through engaging text and project-based activities based on pedagogical best practices, as well as readathons and other exciting competitions, students strengthen their literacy skills and learn to love reading and writing. New York Edge coordinates with schools to ensure that afterschool programs reinforce the methods being used to teach literacy during the school day.

In the process, they come to understand their own skills and identities as leaders. Because leadership is a skill that must be developed through practice, New York Edge gives students opportunities to shape the programs they participate in.
