  3. The Adirondack Park, located in northern New York, is one of the most unique places in the world. It is an international model of the perfect balance between human and natural communities. It is also the largest park in the continental United States. Newcomb, in the heart of the Adirondacks, provides all that nature has to offer including hiking, climbing, canoeing, kayaking, water skiing and tubing, white water rafting, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, hunting, fishing, golfing, camping, skiing and snowboarding, snowmobiling, four wheeling, and last but not least, unmatched beauty. This is the home of Newcomb Central School.

  4. Newcomb has no strangers, only friends who have not yet met! Parents of our international students love knowing that their children are safe. Newcomb Central School has been described as a large family. Visitors to our community cannot believe there is still a town where the people can leave the doors to their cars and homes unlocked.

  5. Over the last six years Newcomb Central School has created an international program that has welcomed 61 students from 25 different nations, including Germany, Boliva, Italy, Serbia, Zimbabwe France, China, Sweden, Brazil, Bangladesh, Israel, Switzerland, South Korea, Iraq, Suriname, Lebanon, Australia, Japan, Finland, Thailand, Vietnam, Russia, Armenia, Spain and Uruguay. During Fall of 2008 and Spring of 2010 the School District received groups of Russian educators who came to visit a successful American educational system. In Spring of 2011 a group of Chinese educators came for the same reason. At Newcomb Central School our students and international students not only go to class together, they are classmates enjoying shared free time. International students are housed with local families and they become members of their adopted homes.

  6. There have been years when 40% of our 9th through 12th Grade has been made up of international students. We are often asked why we have so many foreign students in our little school. We do so for many reasons, but the greatest reason is diversity. Newcomb is a wonderful place, and the school is one of the finest in the state, but we don’t have people from other cultures. We believe to properly prepare students for the flattened world, our students must be exposed to students from other cultures. We have also found that because we are such a welcoming community it is a great place for the international students. The heart of the United States is not in our urban areas, it is in our rural communities, it is in places like Newcomb.

  7. Newcomb Central School District is a school of distinction. While one of the smallest schools in New York State, our students historically have excelled in college, military and/or career. New York State provides a standards based education and is one of the few states that has Regents, a series of state wide exams necessary for graduation. Our dual college/high school courses currently leading up to 20 college credits per year. Our Distance Learning allows our students to receive courses from all over the state that our tight schedule might not allow. NEWCOMB PROVIDES A PRIVATE EDUCATION, AT A PUBLIC SCHOOL COST

  8. The biggest advantage of a small school is everyone does everything. At Newcomb students who have never played a sport or instrument have learned to do so while staying with us. It is not unusual for a student to sing, play in band, create in art, play varsity sports, join Youth and Government, perform in drama, and run for student government. PLEASE NOTE: Athletic eligibility or participation is not guaranteed.

  9. Other Newcomb distinctions: • A school Physician Assistant for diagnosis and treatment • Alternating rural and New York City trips • Distance Learning • Private music lessons and drama club for high school • Extra help and support from teachers that are always available • School TRIP (Thesis Research Investigative Paper) requirement • RTI (Response to Intervention) approach to student support • Youth and Government Club which explains the governmental process to students
