Next Generation School is an independent, private school offering superior educational opportunities in a loving, nurturing environment for students ages six weeks through eighth grade.

 Our holistic approach to education enables our students to realize their fullest potential and become life-long learners who can successfully navigate the world.


Our campus, located in southwest Champaign, is arranged into three buildings.

 Our Early Education building, 1201 West Windsor, serves children ages six weeks through three years.
 Our All-Star building, 2533 Galen Drive, is home to our four year old students, and our Primary and Middle School building is located at 2521 Galen Drive.
 The three buildings are connected by a large play field and playground.


A short distance from University of Illinois' campus, our location affords us the opportunity of many enriching experiences for our students.

 We have established several partnerships with the University and other community staples all designed to enhance our core academics, Fine Arts and Performing Arts, and STEM education programs.


We invite you to visit our campus and experience first-hand the world of opportunity that awaits your child at Next Generation School.
