From North Country School

Founded in 1938, North Country School offers a progressive, hands-on education for children in grades 4-9. Our students come from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and countries. Our unique programming includes a farm and garden program, extensive offerings in studio and performing arts, daily work jobs, and family-style residences. Outdoor activities range from horseback riding, rock climbing and skiing on our 220-acre campus to hiking and camping in the Adirondack Park that surrounds us. Please contact our office to learn more or to schedule a campus visit to experience North Country School for yourself. Come see classes in action, meet our horses, chat with our current students and eat a home-cooked meal in our dining room. We look forward to meeting you.
