NewGate School’s Global Campus

Secondary Montessori Education Online for Global Scholars

Welcome to NewGate’s Global Campus

As the Lab School of the Montessori Foundation, NewGate enjoys an international reputation for excellence, drawing students and their families from across the USA and around the globe to join our dynamic online learning program.

About Our Program

NewGate’s Global Campus is a live, online, fully accredited Montessori program designed for students from around the world. Our program fosters healthy adolescent growth and community awareness through discussion, inquiry, project-based learning, experiential education, and peace education.

Why Choose NewGate’s Global Campus?

Our Global Campus program allows students worldwide to continue their Montessori education in an international learning environment. This robust program is tailored to meet the needs of adolescents seeking a Montessori experience, providing access to a middle and high school education often unavailable in their local communities.

NewGate’s Global Campus is ideal for students who have thrived in Montessori schools but lack access to Montessori middle or high school programs in their areas. It’s also perfect for students whose passions and avocations require frequent travel, making an online community a more fitting educational option.

Unique Features

This is not your typical online school. NewGate’s Global Campus is personal and interactive, designed to encourage hands-on experience, collaboration, friendships, and close relationships between students and their guides.

Who Should Apply?

We welcome applications from uniquely gifted, passionate learners who enjoy a collaborative, real-time learning experience. Our students engage in an exciting and challenging international course of studies at a highly individualized pace.

“NewGate’s Global Campus for adolescents is an extension of NewGate’s Sarasota brick-and-mortar programming and the evolution of my child’s Montessori foundation. They have taken independent learning to a global cosmopolitan level, offering the very best caliber of teachers, curriculum, and community environment that sets them apart from any other virtual or homeschool option we explored.”

When parents ask me about NewGate Global, one of the words that spring to mind immediately is ‘thoughtful’. Not just thoughtful in the sense that the teachers and students show compassion for each other, which they do. However, as a parent observing my two sons on a daily basis, I find the curriculum and the way the teachers administer it to be ‘thought-full’, meaning full of thought. It inspires the students to think about subjects more profoundly. The assignments go deeper and are more personalized than traditional schools. The work is submitted with pride and the presentations that the students often lead the rest of the classes through further deepen the understanding of the material.

Although we initially had some concerns about our sons attending classes virtually, this concern was completely assuaged after the first week. Since every class is led by a group of supremely talented and caring teachers, the virtual format is actually an asset rather than a hindrance. The students also feel accountability for their presence and performance, which, over time, has been extremely beneficial to our sons.

The NewGate Global community is a very special collection of families, students, and teachers that is like nothing else we have encountered as a family through our long journey in education. With each passing year, the lead teachers gain more understanding of what works and what could be better. Unlike a traditional brick-and-mortar private or public school, which we have attended in the past, they have the freedom and courage to make changes that benefit the students. As a result, the program is able to remain agile and holistic, addressing the needs of each student in real time.

One of our favorite experiences is the way they handle parent-teacher conferences. The students themselves are responsible for creating a multi-page presentation, which they lead, informing the parents of what they’re learning that semester and why. All the teachers are present onscreen, and each comments about the students’ work in their subject. As parents, we can ask questions, express concerns, or complement the work. This profound effect on the students gives our sons pride in the work we want them to have and the agency to know they are capable of even more.

Our sons’ favorite extracurricular activity is called ‘Council.’ All the Global students meet once weekly to discuss world matters, participate in a thought exercise, or simply share feelings about an upcoming event. It’s a community-building activity that both challenges and welcomes the students to express themselves.

As a family, we are truly grateful to have found NewGate Global when we did. It is a forward-thinking approach to education that has made our family closer and offered us greater flexibility in our daily lives!
