While the heart of NCHS’ programs is preparing students to exceed NY State Learning Standards and successfully pass the Regents Exams, our students receive much more. At NCHS, we seek to ensure each graduate will be prepared for his or her life-journey through a rigorous and demanding liberal arts education that includes language, literature, writing, science, history, mathematics, the arts, technology, and exploration in disciplines designed to teach fairness, justice, respect and compassion for themselves and others as well as the skills of critical thinking, communication, and research.
