On the morning of September 11, 2001, high school teacher Noah Bopp finished teaching World History class, turned on his television, and learned of the unfolding tragedy that continues to affect our world.  The next day, as he faced his students, he realized that the world had changed forever.  And yet our schools were still the same.  America–and the world–needed new leaders who were ethically strong and internationally aware.  The time had come for a new educational model.

Years later, the school is thriving.  Distinguished guests from across the political spectrum regularly visit the school to speak with students.  Thought leaders like NAIS President Pat Bassett and Harvard professor Howard Gardner have issued statements of support.  Every October, the school welcomes back graduates and families for its annual Homecoming Weekend.  And the venture projects that our graduates are creating have already begun to change our world.
