Boarding School Middle School
North Country School is more than just a boarding school middle school. We accept students from 4th through 9th grade and offer a curriculum that conforms to national standards. Middle school-aged students will find that our challenging curriculum and supportive, encouraging environment will give them the preparatory skills they need for their next school.
Personal Attention and Support for Middle School Aged Students
One of the main points that that sets North Country School apart from other boarding school middle schools is the high level of personalized attention that our students receive. With one of the highest student to adult ratios among comparable schools in the United States (3:1), North Country School is able to provide a degree of closeness with the students and support that are critical at this stage in the student's life. Outside of the classroom, our students share their lives with our caring staff be it on the hiking trail, ski hill, or in our award-winning residence.
A Middle School Boarding School in a Beautiful Environment
Our students learn, live, play and express themselves in an environment uniquely suited for fostering creative and responsible people. North Country School is a New York Boarding School situated amidst the beautiful Adirondacks in Lake Placid, NY. This affords our students a unique opportunity to explore the natural surroundings and learn the importance of sustainability and environmental education. North Country School is also unique in that it's a middle school boarding school with its own working sustainable farm where students perform daily chores and interact with live animals!
