Image of North Country School North Country School:
Located in Lake Placid, Essex County, New York, North County School is a junior co-educational boarding and day school offering a traditional curriculum for children in Grades 4-9.

With its emphasis on progressive education, the school is also successful with gifted students and children with different learning styles. North Country is primarily boarding, but does enroll day students and five-day boarders.


Location and Facilities:

 

We offer full boarding (including weekends) and 5-day boarding. North Country School has no dormitories. Instead, groups of no more than 12 children live in houses under the supervision of caring faculty houseparents, some of whom have families of their own.

Each student has a roommate of the same gender and age, but each house group typically includes boys and girls in different grades from various backgrounds, cultures, and religions.

Seen as one of the great strengths of the program, the resulting mix of students resembles different-aged siblings and helps each house become a true home away from home—a place of safety, where every child belongs.

Day students are assigned to houses, so they, too, can share in the intimacy of the house group.

The house is the center for much of students’ living and learning experiences at NCS, with houseparents piecing together the many dimensions of each child’s growth.
