The Altitude program is a community health initiative working with Newton Medical Center. Altitude partners with leaders in our community to deliver a robust empowerment program to 8th graders within Sussex County. Altitude provides students with a program that spans their entire school year, encouraging students from diverse backgrounds to recognize the hidden similarities between them. Altitude participants find themselves connecting to their peers in positive and enriching ways while connecting to the schools and communities in which they thrive.
Students having taken the “Altitude Climb” are well prepared for their high school years where they are better able to make positive choices toward becoming their best and highest selves, while becoming enthusiastic contributors to their schools, to their community, and to each other.
