Centered on Students. Advancing Equity.

Everything we do starts with the student.

We partner with school districts to co-create thriving, inclusive cultures, where all students succeed in heart and mind.

Humanizing teaching. Empowering educators.

Schools don’t serve all students. But with NTC, yours can. There’s a better way forward.

Desmond Blackburn, Chief Executive Officer

We’re driving a paradigm shift toward student-centered education, where every child feels seen and heard, and every educator is empowered.
