NTI's History

NTI's History

New Tech Institute began as an innovative model in the EVSC in August 2010.

New Tech Institute is part of the New Tech Network, which began in 1996 in Napa, California and now includes more than 170 New Tech schools across the country as well as China and Australia. 

NTI is known as the Thunderbolts, named after the P-47 Thunderbolt airplanes used in World War II, built just about a mile north of the school during the 1940s. 

The first class of NTI students graduated in May 2014, and we have graduated nearly 250 students since.

In 2016, New Tech gained designation as a certified STEM School from the Indiana Department of Education.

In 2015, the New Tech Network named NTI one of 13 National Demonstration Sites and Exemplary Schools in the Network; NTI earned the honor again for the 2016-17 school year.
