Leadership in Community Education since 1939    

    Welcome to New Trier Extension (NTX), the community education program of New Trier Township High School District 203. NTX offers over 500 onsite classes throughout the year during fall, spring and summer sessions. Enjoy daytime and evening classes on our campuses, a limited number of educational day trips, and more than 300 online classes. The full catalog is available online, and is in the mail to all residents of the school district. Please ask your mail carrier for it. It will also be available at local libraries beginning August 15. Or call the office for a copy.

To sign up for classes, simply fill in the registration form, print it and mail, fax or bring it to the NTX office. If there are changes in class dates, times, or locations, we will contact students by email or telephone. Any changes, plus new classes added and last minute openings in trips and classes can be found on our Facebook page.

Our online classes have been very well-received. You can learn from the comfort of your home, your office, even when you’re on vacation. Choose from over 300 instructor-facilitated courses. A new section of each six-week course starts every month. For more information and to register, go the Catalog and follow the link to online classes or go to
