The ScholaX Font Package

ScholaX is made up of text fonts based on TeXGyreSchola, extended to include a quite full set of superior letters and figures and a set of inferior figures. The italic face has been enhanced wth upright punctuation glyphs so that a special theorem font can be made available. Math support is available via newtxmath using one of two options: option "nc" (for New Century [Schoolbook]) uses the newtx Greek alphabets, while option "ncf" uses Greek math alphabets derived from those in the Fourier package. The additions to TeXGyreSchola, named TeXGyreScholaX, and the revisions/additions to the Fourier Greek alphabets are copyright (c) 2019--2021 by Michael Sharpe. The first release was dated 2019-12-30.

The licence of fourier-GUTenberg is LPPL (Latex Public
Project Licence) and the licence for TeXGyre fonts is equivalent to the LPPL, so this package is released under the LPPL.

ScholaX – Extension of GyreSchola (New Century Schoolbook) with math support

This package contains an extension of GyreSchola with extensive superiors, inferior figures, upright punctuation glyphs added to the Italic face for a theorem font, plus slanted and bold slanted faces.

Math support is provided by one of two options to newtxmath, one of which uses an adaptation of the fourier math Greek letters.
