Why We're Distinctive

The School for New Learning (SNL) provides a unique approach to learning for adults, with customized programs that build upon abilities and experiences, add knowledge, and develop skills to help achieve personal and professional goals.

A fundamental idea behind SNL is learning from experience. We believe mixing experiences and interpretations results in lasting knowledge.

SNL programs are designed to recognize and develop competence. Our students are assessed on their problem-solving knowledge.

SNL values individualized learning. Students move at their own pace with personalized guidance.​
