Welcome to
next generation academy

Your child's future starts here.

Greensboro’s most innovative charter school- forging pathways to SUCCESS for ALL students. 

We are a FREE public charter school serving students and their families
Grades K-8 

Our unique and exciting curriculum keeps kids ENGAGED!  We offer a stimulating S.T.E.M. curriculum and a positive and supportive learning environment! Our students experience success every day- fostering a LOVE for school and learning.

We emphasize personalized learning to improve student achievement. Personalized learning is student-centered and allows the student to drive their learning. All students will receive teacher directed, on grade level or above instruction during the core instruction blocks in reading, math, and science.

The result: students who are independent and confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic, responsible and compassionate. We believe the elementary school years are the most formative of a child’s life. These early years can breed intellectual apathy or curiosity to seek knowledge.

Eagles S.O.A.R.

Our mascot is the Eagle. Eagles know how to climb high into the air without fighting against the elements. They work with their environment to soar. Eagles can even fly, carrying more than their own weight. An eagle does most of its work when it first leaves the ground. After the eagle leaves the ground, the strength of their beginning helps them soar high. At NGA, eagles SOAR:
