NPHS students are able to choose from a wide array of academic course offerings designed to challenge them at appropriate levels of ability.

Incorporating service learning opportunities into the fabric of educational process provides students with challenges and experiences both within and outside the traditional classroom. Student-sponsored food and clothing drives, choral performances at local senior citizens centers, volunteer tutoring , intergenerational senior citizen projects and student initiated blood drives allow students to interact with community members in a variety of positive ways. These activities give New Providence High School students an opportunity to give back and show appreciation for all they are given.
