JUNIOR RESIDENTIAL ACADEMY AT
NORTH COUNTRY SCHOOL
The BRFC Junior Residental Academy at North Country School (Lake Placid, NY) is the first junior residential academy in the northeast region of the united states. The BRFC Junior Residential Academy will mirror our BRFC Senior Academy at Northwood School. Student-athletes will live at and attend North Country School while training and competing on a 10 month schedule throughout the academic year (August-June). The Junior Academy will play an independent, age appropriate, competitive schedule against junior boarding schools and elite club teams. For training, they will be incorporated with the Senior Academy on a weekly basis for the purpose of development, mentoring, and evaluation.
ABOUT NORTH COUNTRY SCHOOL
North Country School is a coed junior boarding and day school (grades 4-9) that prides itself on educating and nurturing children today in such a way that they develop the resourcefulness and skills they need for tomorrow. For over 75 years North Country School has achieved this by placing daily and equal emphases on arts and outdoor education and by upholding values, such as our commitment to the environment and the importance of working as community.
Our community thrives because of the meaningful relationships our students form with their teachers and house parents. From these talented educators and with one another, our students gain creativity and confidence. Across all disciplines, our curriculum goes beyond learning by doing to knowing by doing, a mastery that comes only through participation and engagement. It is knowledge that students carry with them from North Country School.
