North Shore Country Day is a JK-12 community of 547 students who come from 33 suburban communities and the city of Chicago. We build our school community just as intentionally as we do our curriculum to ensure that our students and families share the same commitment to growth and development. 

We hope you will "dig in" and learn all that you can about our approach to education. It relies on meeting students where they are, endeavoring to know how they learn, and individualizing our attention and instruction to ensure they grow.

In the end, we want our students equipped with the academic skills, dispositions and habits of mind to live out our mission as "self-confident, ethical citizens of the world who embody our motto, 'Live and Serve.'"

The North Shore Admissions Office is here to assist you no matter what stage of the school search process you are in and we invite you to reach out as your needs arise. We appreciate your interest in our school and we hope to connect with you soon.
