Our Mission: The New Heights Educational Group, Inc. promotes literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services. Such services include: assisting families in the selection of schools; organization of educational activities; and acquisition of materials.
We promote a healthy learning environment and enrichment programs for families of preschool and school-age children, including children with special needs.
Our History: New Heights Educational Group (NHEG) was created on June 1, 2006 and has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception. In exploring home schooling, charter schools, and local public school settings for her children, Mrs. Pamela Clark, Founder/Executive Director, not only found strengths and weaknesses in these systems but she also encountered other families wanting to improve children’s educational experiences. Mrs. Clark discovered that these families were able to help each other, especially in regard to understanding how to teach children with learning difficulties such as ADHD, Bi-Polar disorder, Autism, Neurological Disorders, and Processing Disorders. In addition to more successful child-focused learning techniques, families were able to better cope with their children’s struggles because of increased social support. This experience gave credibility to Mrs. Clark’s vision of having a Resource and Literacy Center that would function as a place for families to come for educational help and support. At NHEG, we provide fill-in-the-gap, one-on-one tutoring for youth and adults. All teachers and students are required to meet three hours a week over a three-day period. We found that fill-in-the-gap type tutoring is necessary in order to reach students that have been left behind in traditional settings.
NHEG has grown and has been able to clearly define a literacy program that is suited for all ages.
In order to promote leadership, we offer a Student Advisory Group for students aged 7 through 13 and a Student Leadership Council for students aged 14 to 23 with a GPA of at least 3.0. This gives them internship opportunities to serve in our organization and earn relevant experience. It also empowers them to make a difference. Additionally, NHEG offers an Adult Advisory Group for parents, providing an outlet for adults to have a voice in improving education. Mrs. Pamela Clark has a passion for bettering education and leads a team of 88 volunteers at NHEG. Her team constantly researches latest advancements, provides guidance to tutors, monitors evaluations, and provides training and resources to teachers for different learning styles.
Through our learning annex we offer free and fee based classes. The site offers many discounted and free classes by 3rd parties as well. Our bi-monthly educational magazine reaches around the globe.
We have also grown our educational internet radio program to over 70,000 listeners.
Our first book titled "One Nonprofit's Journey to Success" was published in 2015. We published another book in November 2016, titled, “Unraveling Reading" which is the first in a series.
Some of the students were on the verge of dropping out of high school before they received tutoring from NHEG and have now graduated. A student, who had suffered from seizures at a young age, was able to jump 3 grade levels in science and 4 grade levels in math in a little over a year after receiving tutoring from NHEG.
We have helped students find online and in person colleges, provided scholarship information, prepared transcripts and diploma's for those in alternative schools. NHEG has also helped adults with obtaining the GED or tutoring. We are truly a one stop shop in education.
This award winning organization has received recognition from all over the world.
