In 1919, North Shore Country Day was the visionary answer to a fundamental question: What matters most when educating a child? NSCD has continually refined its answer, propelling its JK-12 model forward with purpose and passion, building a transformative education.


NSCD develops critical thinkers, collaborative problem solvers and caring citizens of the world who embody the motto “Live and Serve.” Teachers truly know each student and set the bar high. They push students to participate widely and take risks regularly, ensuring they stretch, explore, stumble and grow. In doing so they form unique and powerful identities that carry them into college and beyond.
