A Welcome from David Damico, Director of Admissions, and Rachel Carter, Associate Director

On behalf of the staff and students at North Country School, we extend a warm welcome to a school community in an extraordinary setting with an exceptional philosophy. It is our hope that time spent on our website and talking to admissions staff provide you a clear sense of what it is like for children in grades 4-9 to live, learn, and grow at North Country School.

Our website will answer some of your immediate questions. What do NCS students study and how do they learn? What are the opportunities for recreation and success outside of the classroom? Where do children live, and what is "house life" like? In describing our programs, we aim to share the underlying values and traditions that inform the school’s design.

You will find that North Country School students are:

  • Challenged to grow intellectually, physically, and emotionally
  • Engaged in classwork that involves “learning by doing”
  • Surrounded by talented educators who work and live with their students
  • Inspired by and connected to their natural surroundings

We understand the desire to find a wholesome educational community that has the best ingredients. Here we offer food fresh from our farm, a welcoming place for each member of a remarkably diverse community, art classes every day, and a hands-on approach to an education that equips children for not only secondary school, but also for life in an increasingly connected, global society.

We are always available to answer your questions, connect you with current or past parents, or host you on campus. Please feel free to contact us at (518) 523-9329, extension 6000, or by email at (David), or (Rachel).

We look forward to getting to know you and to educating your child.


David Damico, Director of Admissions
