About

Mission: Our mission is to revolutionize learning, by creating educational supplements that support our existing academic institutions. We will invigorate, empower, and refine the next generation of leaders to LOVE, LEARN, and SHARE the wealth the future has to offer.

We are New Spectrum Educational Consultants LLC, a group of experienced consultants who help students and educators navigate the stress of the evolution from student to leader. We offer a unique holistic approach to learning, training, and leadership, encapsulated in our Personal Development core curriculum “Unlocking the Mind of a Winner,” which has been described as “unparalleled” in the educational supplement market. Our new innovative but thorough approach to this core curriculum was designed to address and strengthen the core of a person: things like self-awareness, emotional intelligence, visions for the future, healthy habits, pre-professional skills, and more.

Mental Fortitude: Protecting The Health Of Your Mind And Spirit Curriculum

Mental Health Program

Mental Fortitude uses the same unprecedented integrated approach as Unlocking The Mind Of A Winner and uses it to enhance self-directed social-emotional awareness. The combination of self-understanding, practical skills, external guidance, and direction to professional mental health resources (where applicable) provides a comprehensive solution to a complex group of challenges. Like Unlocking The Mind Of A Winner, Mental Fortitude is a curriculum-based program available 12 months of the year, with similar professional development training available. Mental Fortitude was designed to strengthen the minds and spirits of today's youth, helping them to self-regulate and process the experiences of their lives.

See The Data

From increased grades to drastically better behavior to higher standardized test results, students are benefitting from participating in New Spectrum programs. Numbers don't lie, so here's what the data have to say...

  • On average, students working with New Spectrum's programs being administered by Civil Society (a Houston-based nonprofit), saw their grades go up by an average of 24 points, from a 59 to an 83. That's the difference between failing and college-bound!

  • Similarly, that same group of students in the Civil Society program saw a decrease of 89% in their frequency of disciplinary referrals, with the vast majority of students going to zero disciplinary actions. Entering the program, no student had a frequency of zero disciplinary referrals.

  • Students in HISD's Ascending To Men program, which uses New Spectrum curricula, showed improvements on their STAAR tests of 6-12 months in reading and 7 to 16 months in math above and beyond what would otherwise be predicted.
