The proposed New Era High School Project is an extension envisaged, to branch out the Junior college section from the existing New Era High school campus, located at Panchgani, a well-known educational center with over 40 schools.

New Era High School is an international, Baha`i co-educational institution established on 1st August 1945 with sixteen children, New Era since has grown into a leading international educational institution. It is under the supervision of the New Era School Committee Trust and under the guidance of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha`is of India.

The New Era High School is a modest campus spread over 2.85 acres. It is a sloping site with an unobstructed view of the valley and mountains around. The campus has facilities like 8 classrooms,4 laboratories, dormitories for girls and boys, a dining hall and staff quarters.

The campus has been designed to generate a "hill Village Street" feel by maintaining a central spine in which stepped areas and an amphitheater has been created. All building blocks branch out from this central spine. 
The buildings have been placed in levels generated by the naturally sloping site. This ensures an unobtrusive sense of construction providing view of the Valley from all the areas..
