Korea Tae Kwon Do (TKD)
Newtopia Enterprise Inc. is an educational vendor to New York City schools providing educational programs in Korean culture, performing arts and martial arts. All our engaging programs in Taekwondo, dance, music, language and acting are a means to develop the discipline and successful functioning that will bring success in the classroom and beyond. The classes are taught by certified Taekwondo masters and other teachers who have the capacity to inspire enthusiasm and curiosity about different cultures and practices.
We are only the organization in New York City to send fully trained and certified program instructors, called “masters,” to schools where they transform activities into a positive experience that helps children and teachers get the most out of every learning opportunity throughout the school day. All of our Taekwondo masters are certified by Kukkiwon, known as The World Taekwondo Headquarters, and home of the World Taekwondo Academy. As the official Taekwondo organization, only Kukkiwon can issue "Degree (Dan) Certification" for Taekwondo masters and practitioners throughout the world.
We are the first and only Taekwondo education service provider to the New York City Department of Education as well as the first and only New York City Charter School Preferred Vendor of Taekwondo education. Since 2008, we have worked with over 20,000 students through physical education classes in schools, refining the methods for making this traditional Korean martial art alive, fascinating and relevant to contemporary students, so that it benefits their intellectual, personal, social and physical development. We have applied the expertise we acquired through years of teaching Taekwondo with the aim of character development to other Korean cultural practices as well. We now provide a range of Korean cultural classes in order to enhance the mental and physical discipline of students.

College Bound Scholars Program
International Leadership has supported students from demographic groups that are under-represented when it comes to college enrollment. In addition to overwhelmingly serving students who experience poverty, many children also grapple with special learning needs or are working to acquire English language expertise. More than 80 percent of the School’s overall population consists of students who will be the first to enroll in college and/or who are children of immigrants.
Nearly 100 percent of this student population completes the high school graduation requirements and college prep sequence that deem them eligible to apply and enroll into post-secondary institutions. Historically, more than 97 percent of graduates do in fact apply and gain acceptance at a college – this rate rises to 100 percent of graduates when looking at data since 2016. On average, students receive 10-12 college acceptance letters with offers of financial aid and scholarships.
The current College Bound Scholars advisement program monitors and supports three key goals: 1) Early registration for the PSATs and SATs and the completion of the Personal Statement by November 30th to keep students on-track to apply for college; 2) Progress toward completion of graduation requirements (45 credits, 200 internship hours and five Regents), attendance, credit recovery and keep the GPA above a 3.0; and, 3) Registration for the College NOW program during Junior and Senior years to engage all students who are interested in graduating from high school with college credits completed.
