Mission

To provide a learning environment for students who would benefit from a nontraditional high school setting. Students who are, or may be, at risk of dropping out will be provided an educational setting in which they can succeed in their pursuit of a high school diploma.

The Charter Academy staff works collaboratively with all students, parents, North Country Charter Academy Board of Trustees members, North Country high school principals, superintendents, guidance counselors and other education team members of all sending districts. The above named educational team will also work together to see to it that the North Country Charter Academy students are given the opportunity to thrive academically, socially, emotionally and physically, both today and in the future.
