We, at New Frontiers Charter School District, believe that every student has the potential to lead – it is why we are committed to providing free, quality public education. Since 1998, we have worked to fulfill our promise of shaping our students into the future leaders of the community.

Our highly innovative academic programs provide a pathway for each student to enter college as high school freshman through our college immersion program. Where other schools focus on college preparation our students are college students. We are changing the course of students’ futures.

Our focus on innovative education is grounded in the The Leader in Me approach that ensures our district is equipped to unleash each child’s full potential and develop leaders with 21st century skills. Here is where opportunity grows.

Our students, educators, families, and community partners make great things happen every day and are highlighted  on radio, television, newspaper, and social media. Stay in the know about the NFCS family via Twitter, Facebook, and this website.

Leading the Way…

Impacting Generations Day One:

Dear Students, Parents, Staff and Leadership,

Today I welcome you to the 2016-2017 academic year. We are on a journey together with a shared objective of forging new frontiers in education. Our schools were launched 18 years ago with a founding vision of shaping our students into our community’s future leaders. Today we honor that commitment by offering a truly unique collegiate experience for our more than 800 students in kindergarten through high school.

Our dedicated educators are preparing our students in grades K-8 to enter college in high school at our Frank L. Madla campus. Through our partnership with UTSA, we use the National Accelerated Schools model to facilitate academic instruction. This model applies real life situations to our learning, builds on our students’ prior knowledge and empowers our students to take ownership of their education on their path to and through college.

We continue to experience incredible success at our Frank L. Madla Early College High School as a result of the drive and commitment from our students, families and extraordinary staff. In the past three semesters, our students have earned over 1,000 college credit hours saving their families more than $150,000 in college expenses.

The Southside of San Antonio is seeing tremendous growth and our district is actively engaged in expansion discussions with city developers. We hope you will join us in these discussions by attending our town halls and meetings throughout the year.

I, along with the Board of Trustees, extend wishes for a successful academic year to each of you. Together we will impact generations to come… one student at a time!
