Newcomb Central School
Newcomb Central School is located in a close-knit, safe community of approximately 500 residents. Surrounded by the majestic Adirondack Mountains, the Town of Newcomb has pristine lakes, gorgeous scenery, and a variety of wildlife. It is approximately 260 miles north of New York City and 230 miles south of Montreal, Canada.
Newcomb is home to one of the "Great Camps" of the Adirondacks that was built by industry magnates in the 19th century. The mighty Hudson River starts here too, at a very manageable width.
There are many opportunities for learning and outdoor recreation in all four seasons including a center that provides environmental education and helps orient visitors to the Adirondack Park. There are miles of trails for hiking, biking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. The town has its own ice-skating rink and downhill ski slope, where people also enjoy sledding. The secluded town beach is excellent for swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, tubing, and water skiing.
Over the years, Newcomb Central School has created a world-renown international program that has welcomed 97 students from 29 different nations. Newcomb students embrace their international classmates. They learn together, share free time together, and make friendships that span the globe and last a lifetime.
We are proud to say that 25% of our international students have stayed in the United States to attend college and major universities. Two alumni of our international program are now doctors.
