Center for Excellence


New Technology High School (NTHS) in Napa, California, opened in 1996 with a new vision for what educating students could look like.  20 years later, our original mission is still at the core of the work we do to transform the lives of our students.  Since opening the doors, NTHS has hosted over 20,000 visitors, including international, national, state, and local educators and business, government, and organization leaders.  New Technology High School is the flagship school of the New Tech Network, a thought leader in education reform with nearly 200 schools throughout the United States and Australia.  Through deepening our project-based learning implementation, exploring the role of technology in education, strengthening a student-led culture, and defining outcomes that matter, New Tech High is in a constant state of innovation and iteration.  We invite you to explore the various opportunities we have for outside stakeholders to learn about the work done at New Tech High.



Through the New Tech High Center for Excellence, we offer extended trainings for schools and educators.  These trainings can either be held on-site at New Tech High or our trainers will come to you. For more information on pricing and how to set-up a training please visit the link below.


Study Tours

The Study Tours are an extensive one day training session that provides schools and educators a deeper look at how New Tech High has become a leader in project-based learning and school reform.  Participants will tour the campus, learn more about the New Tech model and interact informally with students and staff.

Tours New Tech

Tours are designed to provide potential students, community members or other interested individuals a glimpse into what New Technology High School is and what makes it so different from traditional high schools, while providing a valuable learning experience for our tour guides.  We offer two types of FREE tour options: General Tours and Recruitment Tours.

  • General Tours

    • General Tours are for local community members and outside stakeholders to get a glimpse of New Tech High in action.  These tours are student-led and potential students that cannot attend a Recruitment Tour may also attend General Tours. It is strongly recommended that you make your reservation ahead of time to avoid disappointment upon arriving at NTHS without a reservation.

  • Recruitment Tours

    • Recruitment Tours are for potential students interested in learning more about New Tech High.  These student-led tours provide an inside glimpse of what life at New Tech High is like for students.  These tours are designed both for interested middle school students and high school students.  It is strongly recommended that you make your reservation ahead of time to avoid disappointment upon arriving at NTHS without a reservation.
