Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the home of the BLUE KNIGHTS!  Our NOVA staff is very excited, energetic and committed to ensuring that the journey of our students builds life-long learners with skills to ensure academic and social-emotional success! Students who attend NOVA reside in the tri-county area and transition to our school from Oak Park Schools district-wide.

This year promises great opportunities, which include rigorous studies that will prepare all students for the future. NOVA is a unique setting that provides accelerated academics, behavior interventions, career guidance and conflict resolution for students in need of an immediate intervention. We are guided by our restorative philosophy and growth mindset, rooted in a commitment to strong teacher-student relationships, and authentic and personalized learning.

If you would like to learn more and believe that your child would benefit from a small, non-traditional learning environment, we welcome you to schedule a tour!

Go Blue Knights!

Derek Faulk, Principal
