In fall 2011, New Visions for Public Schools opened two charter high schools in the Bronx, with Lincoln Center Institute as lead partner. LCI now works with six charter high schools.

The schools follow a small-school model with limited class sizes and alternatively emphasize humanities and advanced math and science. All students are chosen by lottery. 

LCI’s Capacities for Imaginative Learning are the building blocks that help students achieve the Common Core Standards across the curriculum. Students in all six schools also work with teaching artists and attend performances, visit museums, and are otherwise involved with performing and visual arts. Through a challenge-based curriculum they learn how to ask questions that lead them deeper into the subject of study, conduct research, produce evidence of their work, present their findings, and critique products and presentations.
