The institution that is now NCTA started in 1913 as a residential high school for boys and girls. Our early faculty welcomed young men studying agriculture, and young women, in “normal training” as teachers and in home economics.

They were part of land grant institutions across the United States which first established high schools, then evolved into fulltime college campuses.

This week marks a festive occasion for the last class of senior students who graduated from that original high school in Curtis.
