Global Village Academies are proud to be the first Colorado partners with the renowned NewTech Network project based learning program. NewTech has been featured on national tv networks and reviewed by Education Week as one of the top innovation school networks in the U.S.
Founded in Napa, California, in 1996, New Tech is made up of 160 schools in 26 states and Australia.
New Tech Network works nationwide with schools, districts and communities to develop innovative public schools. It provides services and support that enable schools to fundamentally rethink teaching and learning. The goal is to enable students to gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life, college and the careers of tomorrow.
"If someone asks, I tell them that my school makes sense. The projects relate to the real world, so I never have to ask "why am I learning this?" It’s challenging but in a good way. The way we integrate technology and presentations gives us skills we will use forever. Our school really prepares us for what comes next."
—Senior, Napa New Technology High School
The New Tech design provides an instructional approach centered on project-based learning, a culture that empowers students and teachers, and integrated technology in the classroom. Our hands-on, multi-year approach gives schools structure and support to ensure long-term success.
