The North Carolina New Schools Project is a statewide public-private partnership that sparks and supports innovation in secondary schools. NCNSP promotes a vision that every high school in North Carolina will graduate every student ready for college, career and life in the 21st century. NCNSP assists schools and communities in transforming education for the 21st century economy. Working with more than 70 districts and over 100 high schools, NCNSP is helping students acquire the skills to think critically and communicate effectively. NCNSP partners with teachers and administrators to build the essential knowledge and expertise required for educators to challenge and support students so they finish high school ready for college, career and life. NCNSP’s Design Principles are put into practice by transforming existing schools and establishing new schools. Transforming Existing Schools: Creating focused and academically rigorous schools that serve all students demands a fundamental rethinking of the 20th century school model. Approaches include academies, small learning communities and other designs that result in schools with a student-centered approach to education. Establishing New Schools: More communities are establishing new schools and early college high schools in non-traditional settings such as college campuses or local hospitals. These schools emphasize acquisition of college credit prior to graduation and strategies to incorporate essential skills development.
