Welcome to Nueva Admissions

Thank you for including the Nueva School in your school search. Nueva is a constructivist school for gifted and high-ability learners from prekindergarten to high school, emphasizing integrated studies, creative arts, social-emotional learning, and design thinking. It is also a community that values curiosity, inclusion, diversity, innovation, discovery, and authentic learning experiences.

For over 50 years Nueva has remained committed to its original mission: to inspire a passion for lifelong learning, foster social and emotional acuity, and develop a student's imaginative mind. Our students take intellectual, social, and academic risks and find comfort in knowing they have a safe space to ask questions, make mistakes, and enjoy the journey of learning. 

Nueva has grown in number, facilities, and programs in recent years. We opened our Upper School campus in August 2014, and have nearly 900 PreK–12 students across our Hillsborough and San Mateo campuses. With planned renovations for both campuses, we continue to create beautiful and stimulating learning environments. We are excited to welcome you to our campus to learn more about our community.

You are encouraged to visit us during the 2018–2019 admissions season, starting September 1, 2018. Through our admissions events, such as Parent Tours and Open Houses, you will witness the joy of learning in a Nueva classroom and understand the philosophy of a gifted education. Through a campus visit, students will experience a true connection with like-minded peers and understand the "Nueva Way" — engaging, passionate, and limitless learning. To register for these opportunities, please complete the inquiry process and create an account through our online application system, Ravenna Solutions. You will be able to register for additional admissions events, apply and track your progress toward application completion. Just click the "Apply Online" button to create your account. Registration for events begin September 1.
