Innovation

At West Nottingham, students develop 21st century skills that they will need to thrive in college and in the ever-evolving workplace. Innovation is present in all parts of our college-preparatory curriculum grounded in the liberal arts and sciences, and the geographic hub of innovation on campus is our state-of-the-art 2,500-square-foot Innovation Center.
