New Ways at The New School

Educating during COVID was the wildest thing we’ve seen our school navigate in its 50 years of existence. Up close and personal, up close and in person was at the heart of who we were at the Blacksburg New School, and that needed to change. But, we adjusted and we learned new ways to do what we've always done: work to instill a love of learning and respect for the community and others.


Now that the situation has changed again, we're still learning. And still finding ways to keep our community safe.

Below, you'll find details about our school operating procedures, offerings, risk-mitigation efforts, and weekly board updates (as applicable).
