Letter from the Principal

Hello and welcome to New Horizons Academy, a safe, nurturing educational environment where children reach their full personal and academic potential. 


Our team of dedicated educators take the time to get to know each child so we know how best to teach to their strengths and overcome their weaknesses; we build self-esteem by highlighting those strengths so students have the confidence to take on academic and social challenges that have been insurmountable for them in the past.


Our mission at New Horizons Academy is to provide a personalized instructional setting that enables each student to achieve academic success in safe, nurturing surroundings, and to prepare each student to become a fully participating member of society.

Our education objectives are to coordinate with families and students to understand individual strengths and learning styles and to facilitate student transition to public or private settings, including college, vocational career training, and meaningful employment.


Our school motto, “Excelsior,” is the Latin word meaning “ever higher.”  The motto reflects the philosophy of New Horizons that each student works to his or her own level of competency while constantly attempting to raise his or her own personal level of achievement. With the help of their teacher, students are always seeking new and innovative means to improve academically, socially, and personally. Our students take pride in their successes as well as the successes of others, but they realize that there is potential for greater successes on each new horizon.


If your son or daughter struggles with learning or social challenges and our philosophy resonates with you, please feel free to reach out to me at 702-876-1181 or via email at bidellb@newhorizons.vegas.  I look forward to working side by side with you in helping your child reach their full potential.
