Mission & Philosophy



North Country School strives to create a community that gives children the self-confidence, knowledge, skills, and values to lead satisfying and productive lives while contributing to their world.


  • We believe that children become confident and resourceful individuals when they try new experiences and cultivate their skills toward mastery, with the guidance of caring adults.
  • We believe that teaching and learning are most successful when intellectual activity is linked with practical experience.
  • We are committed to simple and sustainable living, making responsible choices about our use of resources.
  • We are committed to sustaining a diverse and nurturing community that supports individual growth and creativity, develops resilience, and promotes social responsibility.
