Nex+Gen Academy is a national demonstration site and Exemplary School for the New Tech Network of 130 high schools across the country. Nex+Gen provides a wall-to-wall project-based learning approach, engages students with dynamic, rigorous curriculum preparing for college and career. The smart use of technology supports our innovative approach to instruction and culture.

Nex+Gen maintains a culture that promotes trust, respect, and responsibility. Our students and teachers alike have exceptional ownership of the learning experience and their school environment. Working on projects and in teams, students are accountable to their peers and acquire a level of responsibility similar to what they would experience in a professional work environment. In just our fourth year, nex+Gen Academy and our learners are succeeding a variety of ways:

  • More than 75% of our juniors and seniors have successfully completed a dual credit college course
  • Nearly 74% of our seniors are proficient or advanced on the high school graduation assessment in reading
  • Our minority students, English Language Learners, students with special needs, and economically disadvantaged students far outperform their peers groups in a variety of high-stakes, standardized testing
  • Nearly a third of our teaching staff are National Board Certified; five of them were awarded just this fall!
