Bronx Haven High School was founded by a joint partnership between the Department of Education and East Side House Settlement. Bronx Haven opened its doors in September 2008, with its mission of providing this population of students a second opportunity at earning a high school diploma. Bronx Haven High School is a transfer school. Students who have dropped out or fallen behind on credits can apply for admission to our school to earn a diploma. In partnership with students, faculty and families, we will use innovative methods to support the personal growth of our students and help them succeed in higher education. Each student at Bronx Haven High School is provided with an advisor whose responsibilities include individualized academic guidance, college and career preparation, and life skills development.
