What is New Story?
New Story is comprised of schools and community-based services located throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio. We help children with the most serious and/or complex educational and behavioral challenges by providing environments and services that encourage growth, learning and goal achievement. New Story gives children and their families the opportunity to create their own new stories of growth and success, and to live fulfilling and meaningful lives.
How did New Story begin?
In 1997, Paul Volosov, Ph.D., founded New Story schools (formerly Milestones Achievement Centers of America – MAC) and New Story services (formerly Milestones Community Healthcare) to help children with serious and/or complex challenges live good lives. Throughout his career as a psychologist and entrepreneur, Paul identified gaps in the system – the need for educational, behavioral and emotional services for children and families facing the most serious and complex issues – those who cannot be supported effectively by other providers.
Over the years, New Story’s highly-skilled educators and therapists have worked with children and their families to provide personalized education and support to help them overcome challenges and achieve success. Each staff member and student has the opportunity to create individual new stories – collectively, creating a much larger “New Story.”
