Academic excellence and enhancing educational opportunities for all students at Newport Harbor High School has been Newport Harbor Educational Foundation’s  (NHEF) mission since 1995. NHEF’s annual pledge of $500,000 to Newport Harbor High School provides programs as defined by the acronym ‘CLASS’: 

C for classroom technology
L for learning assistance
A for academic enhancement
S for safe environment
S for success after high school

With tremendous generosity from parents, alumni and community donors, NHEF is investing in NHHS and enhancing student success. Our ‘Sailors for Life’ videos (below) share our students’ experiences in International Baccalaureate advanced curriculum, career mentoring, evening Math Lab tutoring by our teachers, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), culinary arts, and the chorus – some of the many programs that we fund at NHHS, including Harbor’s Performing Arts Academy.
