NorthBay has been serving over 10,000 students per year in residential and targeted tutoring education programs. Each year we have been formally evaluating the effectiveness of our program in terms of environmental intention to act, academic intention to act and citizenship/character. This process is designed and overseen by a team of external consultants from Yale, Virginia Tech and Clemson Universities through the administration of pre, post and 3 month past experience instruments.
Evaluation created by Dr. Marc Stern (Virginia Tech), Dr. Nicole Ardoin (Stanford) and Dr. Bob Powell (Clemson).
Apart from overall satisfaction, the evaluation measures three key areas of impact as well as determining the student’s attitude towards school. These three areas of impact include: Personal Impact, Character Development and Leadership and Environmental Responsibility.
Over the course of 15 years of professional evaluation, NorthBay has consistently proven to have a significant impact in all three key areas.
Some key takeaways from our latest evaluation include:
