North Country School

Founded in 1938, North Country School sits among mountain peaks in the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, just outside Lake Placid, NY. Our 200-acre campus features a working farm, extensive gardens, and mountain wilderness that provide hands-on opportunities for learning and growth. Here children in grades 4-9 benefit from a literal and metaphorical breath of fresh mountain air; our students thrive in a humanely paced program that features equal parts academics, arts, work, and play. The guidance of talented, committed adults and a strong, diverse community instill in students values of simple living and environmental responsibility. With a unique mix of inspiring people, place, and programs, North Country School helps students to flourish.

Last weekend we welcomed students back to North Country School after our week-long Thanksgiving Break. After two days of online learning and a round of negative test results, we resumed in-person programming for all of our students this Wednesday. It was great to see everyone back in our classrooms and arts studios to start a term of learning and creating together. Meanwhile, the fresh snow that blanketed campus over break provided the perfect playground for sledding, snow-building, and skiing. We loved watching our many first-time cross-country skiers enthusiastically take on this fun new challenge as they explored our wooded trails and open meadows.

We will resume our weekly #ThisWeekAtNCS blog updates on Friday, December 10. In the meantime, please enjoy these photos from this past week on our mountain campus: https://galleries.northcountryschool.org/December-3-2021/?utm_source=2021-22+NCS+Families&utm_campaign=a37315a980-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_09_10_01_05_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_23e7e553b0-a37315a980-548810521

Our students were greeted by a layer of fresh snow when they returned to campus this week, and we couldn't think of a better way to enjoy it than by making tracks on our trails.

We were excited to see Mirna Valerio - The Mirnavator was on the Today Show this morning, and we couldn't help but notice our beloved Balanced Rocks in the background of this photo. In case you missed it, Mirna was one of our guests during #accesswildplaces last June.
