New Century Academy in Hutchinson, Minnesota is a charter school offering a free public education for students in grades 7-12. As a project-based learning academy, New Century Academy encourages innovation and creativity and develops critical thinking and problem solving skills through the real world application of core academic subjects. We foster a strong sense of community and partnerships between parents, teachers and students to improve student achievement. In addition to project-based learning, Career and Technical Education and Work-Based Learning are new programs which help students explore career options, improve their academic skills and make connections between what is learned at school and in the real workplace. We’re excited about what’s happening at NCA and invite you to check us out!
