NEW TECH ACADEMY (NTA) offers our students a full New Tech Network experience including wall-to-wall project-based learning in an environment built on trust, respect and responsibility.

Project-based learning is the heart of our instructional approach. Our students collaborate on real-world projects that require critical thinking, creativity, and communication as they answer challenging questions or solve complex problems. This approach provides educational opportunities for all students to help them become deeper learners who are ready for a 21st century world.


ACADEMY OF GLOBAL STUDIES (AGS), established in August 2011, combines the New Tech Network (NTN) school model with global education programming from the local World Affairs Council. This educational model is intended to make students more globally competent through while they investigate the world, communicate ideas, recognize perspectives and take action.

Students commit to an additional class hour per day, as well as community service and international travel requirements. Student ACT test scores and personal outcomes are dramatically higher for AGS scholars as a result of this global application-based learning environment.
