The Newport School of Innovation is part of the Newport Independent School District. We offer four programs that meet the diverse needs of students throughout parts of Northern Kentucky. These include Trailblazer, Go Steady, Ascend and Care. All curriculum is provided online for student flexibility with support from certified teachers.
The Newport School of Innovation enrollment is closed for the first semester. We will start accepting new applications again in November and December for the second semester.

A Huddle course is recommended for students which meets twice a week. No state testing is administered, but MAP testing is encouraged to show progress. The cost of Trailblazer is $60 per month.
