Community Forum Meetings

Dr. Matthew Shoemaker, our Superintendent of the New Castle School Corporation,  would like to invite members of the community  to attend a  forum meeting at the location and time most convenient to you. This will be a forum to discuss the educational priorities of New Castle as we work toward the development of our corporation’s Strategic Plan. This is your opportunity for him to receive your input and feedback. We look forward to seeing you there!



We learned this June that our parents saved over $374,000 in college tuition during 2016-17 by virtue of their child taking dual-credit classes at NCHS to earn college credits via Ivy Tech, I.U., and/or Vincennes Univ.!

 Students earn an Ivy Tech Associate's by taking NCHS classes!

"ACP" courses are via I.U. "Digital Citizenship" is via Vincennes Univ. All others are through Ivy Tech.
