Admissions Welcome

Thank you for your interest in North Shore Country Day School. Our goal is to know each student and challenge them to become critical thinkers, collaborators with peers and faculty, skilled communicators and responsible global citizens.  We do this through a tightly knit community.  We foster responsibility for self and our environment. And we require all students to expand their awareness of others through service learning. It’s an educational dynamic that leverages learning with strong personal connections, critical thinking, creativity and classroom participation.
Our Admissions staff takes the time to know each and every prospective student and his or her family. We want to understand your educational goals and help you get to know the School, its curriculum and culture.
We encourage you to learn as much as possible about North Shore. Start by submitting an Inquiry, or give us a call at 847.441.3313, or send us an email to arrange a tour of our campus and classrooms. We look forward to meeting you soon.
