Welcome to The New School

Thank you for your interest in The New School.

In 1971, The New School opened in Fayetteville, Arkansas as a non-profit organization with 24 students age three to six. Today, the school has more than 400 students from one-year-olds in the preschool to 11th grade. Over the years, the school has seen substantial growth, in both the program and the leadership, but the philosophy and mission of the school have stayed very much the same.

At The New School, we know we’re educating students for a world they don’t yet see. A New world. We’re preparing them for jobs that may not exist. New careers. And we’re exposing them to ideas that stretch their minds. New ideas.

Our core values - Curiosity, Innovation, Respect and Citizenship, Excellence and Community, exist not just to tell us what we stand for today, but to guide us into the “new” during seasons of growth.

Hopefully you have taken the opportunity to glance through our website and learned more about the amazing learning happening at The New School. I encourage you to take some time and view our Admission Process.
