About the Learning Program

Cougar New Tech Entrepreneurial Academy is a progressive school where learners use technology to complete group projects as they would in a professional work environment. Courses are taught in double classrooms by pairs of facilitators who integrate subject content to create projects that are both standards-based and relevant to learners' lives.
