North Country Charter Academy Class of 2015


North Country Charter Academy (NCCA) provides a rigorous, relevant and engaging education with high standards and expectations which prepares students for life through a personalized, competency-based program that creates confident, career-ready individuals.


North Country Charter Academy (NCCA) will provide a learning environment focused on personalized learning for students who may be at risk of dropping out of high school or who have dropped out. Students will be provided an alternative educational setting in which they can succeed in preparation for college and career readiness within the scope of the global economy.


NCCA was established in 2004 through collaborative efforts of North Country Education Services Agency and nine School District Superintendents.


Since 2004, NCCA has graduated 362 students. Student post graduate placements include:

Raymond Burton Award
Each year, a member of the graduating class is awarded the very special Raymond Burton Award. Executive Councilor Raymond Burton was well-liked and respected by his constituents and the people that he served in his district. The graduate chosen to receive the award in his name displays the attributes personified in Councilor Burton, demonstrating that he or she is accountable, dependable, compassionate, caring, kind, attentive and dedicated.

NCCA is seeking public input addressing the following new law that became effective August 1, 2015, specific to Classroom Recordings.

Personally-Identifiable Data and Classroom Recording (Chapter 71) Effective August 1, 2015, RSA 189:65 is amended to provide teachers with the same levels of information protection and privacy afforded to students. Teacher personally identifiable data includes a teacher's social security number, date of birth, personal street address, personal email address, personal telephone number, performance evaluations, and other identifiable information. The statute also prohibits a school from recording a classroom for any purpose without school board approval after a public hearing, and without written consent of the teacher and the parent or legal guardian of each affected student.
