Friends of New Tech

Napa’s New Tech High School (NTHS) is the crowning jewel in the New Tech Network of 170+ schools across the United States. As we embark on our 20th year, our students continue to learn in an innovative and professional environment fostered by the use of advanced learning methods and technology.


Friends of New Tech (FONT) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) founded in 2008 to ensure that NTHS has the resources to continually innovate and engage students through a dynamic and rigorous curriculum. The board’s mission is to support the annual goals, program objectives and fundraising of NTHS. FONT plans and coordinates fundraising programs and events to provide financial support beyond the core funding received from the Napa Valley Unified School District.

We recognize attending New Tech High is a choice and commitment made by our students and their families. The academic environment requires greater financial investment than traditional education in five key areas:

  • Tools of the Future (technology)
  • Road to Success (college & career readiness)
  • Teaching for Tomorrow (professional development)
  • School without Walls (student activities)
  • Deeper Learning (supplies & equipment)

The Friends of New Tech have a handful of primary methods of raising money to support the students and staff of New Tech High:

  • Annual Family Giving
  • Annual Alumni Giving
  • Annual Community Giving
  • Napa New Tech Online Auction
  • Center for Excellence
  • Grants


We encourage all New Tech families to make a tax-deductible contribution towards our annual fundraising goal.  For additional information, please contact Lizette Rios, New Tech High Community Liaison, at lizette_arana@nvusd.org, by phone at 707-259-8557 or visit us at newtechhigh.org/donate.
